Example natural gas liquefaction plant, to convert natural gas into a liquefied state.

With unanimous votes, both West Vancouver and Gibsons councils have supported motions stating that they do not support an extension of the Environmental Assessment Certificate for Woodfibre LNG unless the extension includes a condition that Woodfibre LNG must meet the IPCC targets for its operation within the District of Squamish to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030 and 100% by 2050.

They've joined Squamish and Bowen Island in holding Woodfibre LNG accountable for its local greenhouse gas emissions. Woot woot!

The filmmaker’s latest venture is an excruciating mishmash of environment falsehoods and plays into the hands of those he once opposed
