BC's GHG Emissions Shell Game

In a recent post on Policy Note, Marc Lee points out that the BC government's recent decision to close down one big GHG producer — Burrard Thermal plant in Vancouver — won't reduce total emissions, since the government is allowing new oil and gas facilities to be built that emit even more GHGs. Marc's bold proposition: an immediate moratorium on all new oil and gas development — unless accompanied by carbon capture and storage.
