Guess they're talking about Canada & @liberal_party re #BayduNord #TMX #LNGCanada
#oldgrowrh #clearcut 👇
"Ongoing investments in fossil fuel infrastructure & clearing large swaths of forest for agriculture undermine the massive curbs in emissions needed to meet Paris goal"
Such cuts would be hard to achieve without without drastic, economy-wide measures, the panel acknowledged. It’s more likely that the world will pass 1.5C

#JustinTrudeau never had any INTENTION of meeting 2C much less 1.5C target
Many experts say #CCS is UNFEASIBLE with current technologies, & even if it could be done it would be far costlier than preventing the emissions in the first place."

They need to elaborate what they mean by costlier @MarkJCarney @s_guilbeault

.@MurrayRankinNDP knows the current conflict in the Wet’suwet’en has a root cause - the @bcndp’s policy decision to proceed with #LNGCanada and the #CGL pipeline. Period. 1/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten
cbc.ca/news/canada/br…
The @bcndp understands the conflict over land title, @MurrayRankinNDP himself referenced the SCC’s #Delgamuukw decision. Despite that they made a choice to work with some and not others. 2/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten
By the time everyone was invited to the table the pipeline was already deeply entrenched as the focal point of conflict. The @bcndp wanted #LNGCanada & #CGL pipeline and they chose to ignore the complex governance issues created by successive Crown gov’ts. 3/ #bcpoli #wetsuweten

Sources are passing on a lot of concerning information about #COVID19BC management at #SiteC and in Fort St John. This much smoke usually means fire. I'm just going to pass it along in the hope that we can finally get some official response... 1/x
..1. Word is that workers who put themselves into "self-isolation" at #SiteC are NOT automatically tested. (This is a Q many have asked over the past 9 months - What is self isolation & are all workers tested?) I asked sources why. Same answer every time: "No test = no outbreak."
2. Frontline cleaning and other staff are moving freely between shifts at #SiteC, various Fort St John-area schools, and Peace Villa (which is the LTC attached to the FSJ Hospital, which has had #covid19BC cases). There have been cases & exposures at all 3 places.

"LNG Canada workers complained about unsafe conditions prior to COVID-19 outbreak" @TorontoStar
Sounds like #SiteC too, based on employee reviews... thestar.com/news/canada/20… #covid19bc #bcpoli @BruceRalston @jjhorgan
@TorontoStar @BruceRalston @jjhorgan ."The outbreak at #LNGCanada started on Nov. 19 & there are now 54 cases. In the months leading up to the outbreak, workers raised concerns about #COVID19BC cleaning procedures in common areas, rooms & work spaces, prompting inspections by WorkSafe BC on Aug 28 & Oct 19." #bcpoli
@TorontoStar @BruceRalston @jjhorgan ..Get this: "The documents also reveal that a WorkSafe BC inspection of the #SiteC work camp’s sewage treatment facility in northeast BC on March 19 found the facility did not have a plan to sufficiently protect workers from pathogens, body fluids, human waste, mould & COVID-19."

Let's do NDP highlights, starting with:
When NDP took power they kept a right-wing, BC Lib-appointed top bureaucrat in the Energy Ministry, conspiracy theory fan Dave Nikolesjin. Recently they replaced him with more far-right Fazil Mihlar of the Fraser Institute. #BCElection2020
..Next up, & related: NDP give us 79% increase in fossil fuel subsidies over BC Lib levels, a significant rise in fracking (incl right near #SiteC & other dams), & signing off on a militarized raid on #Wetsuweten to protect #CoastalGasLink in a climate crisis. #bcelxn2020 #bcpoli
.."Natural gas" is fracked methane, the potent GHG. Also on NDP's gas file, the #LNGCanada project, an uneconomic house of cards in which we forego royalties but are left paying for the damage & transmission lines etc. "LNG is a Losing Bet": thetyee.ca/News/2020/10/2… #bcelxn2020

My trusty energy engineer source is back with some interesting comments on today's disturbing news of a federal bailout of the oil & gas industry. He has some ideas on what Canada should be doing instead: 1/x
#bcpoli #SiteC #LNGCanada #CoastalGasLink #Wetsuweten #ableg #cdnpoli
First, here is the news of Canada's federal bailout of the oil & gas sector in the midst of the #covid19 pandemic, instead of letting the industry sunset & retraining workers & incentivizing alternatives: 2/x theglobeandmail.com/politics/artic… #cdnpoli
Engineer: 'the Canadian oil & gas sector is on its knees. It cannot compete with big global producers, esp with its inferior oil product. Maybe time to use the bailout money to switch to hydrogen & keep people employed in a growing industry, not a dying one we can't compete in..'

My former gas pipeline engineer pal is on a roll this morning: 'Now we know how much power it takes to make #LNG: it's equivalent to fueling a large coal plant in Alberta, & does absolutely nothing other than basically throw all that CO2 in the air just to put methane in a boat.'
"Considering all the costs, delays, fighting for a right of way, environmental damage, wouldn't it have been simpler and more effective to just sell the fracked gas to Alberta, and build a pipeline to convert even 1 coal plant there to natural gas?" Not to mention cleaner..
"This would save the country and the planet from burning more CO2 than this whole LNG project does, as it ships what's left all the way to Asia. Right now, for example, 4 coal plants are running in that power range [LNG Canada takes 420 MW to refrigerate methane into LNG]."

ICYMI, there's a hidden driver behind the fracking of gas in NE BC & the associated #CoastalGasLink pipeline being pushed through #Wetsuweten territory. It's condensate, a fracking by-product, & the Alberta tar sands need it for diluting bitumen: thenarwhal.ca/the-resource-b… #bcpoli
In that 2018 article on condensate by @BenParfittCCPA in @thenarwhalca, Parfitt points out that mainstream media doesn't cover the key issue of condensate. That's still as true today in 2020 as it was in 2018.
2/x
@BenParfittCCPA @thenarwhalca In a thread a month ago I tried to quickly show the intimate link between BC fracking, #CoastalGasLink, #SiteC, #LNGCanada and the #TMX pipeline, but this time I'll focus more on the condensate. #bpcoli #LNGCanada #Wetsuweten #cdnpoli

#Alberta has an 8.2% unemployment rate. Massively uncomfortable question: What do you think the rate would be if #Alberta was a U-S state? The correct answer is full employment. Everyone knows how much I love Canada and #Alberta So it breaks my Cdn heart to think our federal
system is so incompetent,unflexible & ideologically biased that we should have to ask uncomfortable questions like this. Look at the low unemployment numbers in U-S states that have far fewer advantages and assets than #Alberta and you don't have to be a #Nobel prize winner in
Economics to know that #Alberta would be the superstar, the Connor McDavid of state economies if the government and courts weren't albatrosses around the necks of #Albertans I always want #Alberta to be part of Canada.But how I could blame #Albertans looking at 8.2% unemployment
