Armchair chat yesterday between our Prime Minister and Bill Nye the Science Guy…
Nye said studies have shown Canada could be run by renewable energy–so why are we promoting pipelines—like Kinder Morgan?
Trudeau says Canada is working on technology for more renewable energy—but in the meantime—we still need fossil fuels to churn out power, heat our homes and run our vehicles:
“If we can get our fossil fuels to new markets in the Pacific–Alberta does better, our economy does better–and we’re making sure that we’re innovating to keep things safe. Now–a pipeline is safer than oil by rail, certainly safer than oil by trucks. A modern pipeline can be carefully monitored and can be done safely.” (photo credit—Canadian Press)
