For more than eight years, independent economist Robyn Allan has amassed information about the economics and politics of pipeline expansion. She’s appeared both as an expert witness at the Northern Gateway pipeline review and expert intervenor at the Trans Mountain expansion project review. Disappointed by the outcomes, she decided to do something completely different.

Thank you for your continuing interest in and support of the Unist'ot'en stand for sovereignty and against the Coastal GasLink fracked LNG pipeline. The following is a bit about what's currently going on at this important front line.

A rational world with a good grasp of reality would have begun articulating a long-term energy and consumption wind-down strategy 20 or 30 years ago.

Yesterday I presented the first of two “Am I wrong?” queries regarding the climate crisis. If you accept my facts, I said, you will see the massive challenge we face in transforming human assumptions and ways of living on Earth.

Comrade Sawant,
    At a meeting this afternoon the Vancouver Ecosocialists (British Columbia) voted enthusiastically to send you our hugely delighted congratulations on your re-election to Seattle City Council. We recognize this victory, in the face of capital's contemptible, anti-democratic attempt to purchase your defeat, as a tribute to the time, energy, and creative effort you have expended during your first two terms on behalf of the working people of Seattle and on behalf of all working people. Thank you!

Far to the left of the NDP, far greener than the Greens

What does it mean to be an ecosocialist? We think it means understanding that the rising concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few, at the expense of the many, is hurting many people now, while it also fuels the climate catastrophe that is driving us towards extinction.

You’ve probably never even heard of two of Canada’s more effective provincial and city-scale climate policies—and that’s probably not a bad thing.

The BC Energy Step Code and the City of Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Building Plan are both building regulations introduced within the past two years or so by the Province of British Columbia and the City of Vancouver, respectively.

Almost two dozen Canadian environment groups are urging the federal Liberal government to make sure its next budget acknowledges that climate change is costing the country hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

The groups are releasing their annual Green Budget document today calling for money for green skills training, funds to retrofit transport trucks with fuel-saving devices and a massive increase in spending on global climate mitigation projects.
