Alberta tries to co-opt environmentalist oppositionNovember 3, 2011
In an approach that I have long advocated, the Alberta Energy Ministry is playing up its environmental efforts (Petroleum Economist subscription required for full article) in an attempt to mute the demonstrations against oil sand development. Alberta is touting not only its very considerable CCS efforts, but also wind power development. Give something to get something. You aren’t going to get all of them, or even most of them, but you can get enough to de-fang the movement.
