B.C.'s thirsty LNG industry is a threat to water supplies 4.10.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Emma Lui On Monday, a consortium of big energy players made a final investment decision that approved LNG Canada, a $40-billion fracked gas project, paving the way for more fracking in B.C. This decision was made on the heels of water restrictions for fracking companies in the northeastern corner of the province due to drought. CBC reports , "The LNG Canada project will see a pipeline carrying natural gas from Dawson Creek in northeastern B.C. to a new processing plant on the coast in Kitimat. There, the gas would be liquefied for overseas export." The five primary investors include Royal Dutch Shell, Mitsubishi Corp., Malaysian-owned Petronas, PetroChina Co., and Korean Gas Corp.  LNG project approved despite droughts, wildfires and need to curb climate change Monday night's decision gives the green light to a very thirsty industry that will abuse even more water at a time when water supplies are unpredictable.  As more than 500 forest fires burned across B.C. this summer, drought warnings were also ...

Approval of Frontier mine would be a climate crime 25.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson Hearings begin today on the proposed Teck Resources Frontier tar sands mine that could produce at its peak 260,000 barrels of oil a day. CBC reports, "[The mine] undergoes its first day of public hearings in Fort McMurray on Tuesday [September 25] before a joint review panel established by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the Alberta Energy Regulator." That article adds, "The hearing is expected to last five weeks." The Narwhal notes, "Teck estimates the bitumen resources to be tapped are in the neighbourhood of 3.2 billion barrels." And Eriel Deranger has written: "This project would disturb over 292 square kilometres (overlapping with critical habitat for caribou and bison) along the Athabasca River, create 4 MT of GHG emissions annually, and contribute to the further diminishing of our inherent, treaty and international rights as Indigenous peoples." Construction on the mine could start as early as 2019 while extraction of oil from the mine is expected to begin in ...

Confronting climate change means challenging capitalism 11.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson While it is not often named in the mainstream media, the economic system that we live (and die) under has a name: it is called capitalism. There's also a strong argument that capitalism is inextricably linked to the existential crisis of our time and that we must push for a profound economic transformation while there is still time to avoid catastrophic climate disruption. Capitalism, in its simplest terms, is an economic system based not just on profit, but on the maximization of profit. Neoliberalism can be understood as internal to the logic of capitalism and includes deregulation, corporate tax cuts, privatization and free trade. These are ideologies of huge inequalities in wealth and power. When Justin Trudeau, promoting the tar sands, told oil and gas industry executives in Texas that, "No country would find 173 billion barrels of oil in the ground and just leave them there," he couldn't have more clearly made the point. While science says that 85 per cent of the tar sands needs to ...
