WHY IT MATTERS:
Never before has so much public attention focused on the evolution of Alberta’s climate policy. In the lead up to the major global climate negotiations in Paris, provinces across Canada are aspiring to bold action. Alberta’s premier-elect has also signaled the need for climate leadership. Yet Alberta’s context, as a major Canadian oil and gas producer, is unique. Its policy decisions must consider a broad range of issues including its role meeting global energy demands and the economic importance of its oil and gas industry. Negotiating these complex issues and moving forward with solutions that achieve both economic and environmental imperatives will require the broad support of Albertans.
