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.

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 ...

What the drought warnings across Canada are telling us 30.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Emma Lui As more than 500 forest fires burn across B.C., the drought conditions across the province are also worsening.  On Monday, CBC reported , "Nearly one-quarter of B.C.'s regions are now at the highest drought rating, with no significant rain in the forecast." B.C. is not alone in experiencing droughts and other extreme weather events, all of which are worsening with climate change. Many regions across provinces and territories, which are on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples, have issued drought warnings. There were 120 forest fires burning in northern Ontario earlier this month, which have now decreased to 26 fires.    These extreme weather patterns seriously threaten clean drinking water sources, watersheds as well as our food security. Despite drought, forest fires and extreme weather events, most governments continue to promote an economic system that puts unlimited growth above water, our climate and the vital needs of people and the planet.  Governments must take immediate ...
