Webinar "TMX Lights the Carbon Bomb" featuring science educator Jennifer Nathan
Everyone who has worked to fight the construction of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project will be familiar with the Canada Energy Regulator (it was known as the National Energy Board back in the day) and knows it has been co-opted to act in the interests of big oil. But do you know about just how much our federal government has been co-opted as well? Science educator Jennifer Nathan has been following the Energy Regulator reports and parliamentary committee work on the oil and gas emissions cap, the net zero climate accountability act and fossil fuel subsidies. She'll tell a gripping tale of the stark reality of the science of climate crashing up against the Machiavellian tactics used to silence the science and increase oil production in this country for decades to come. If TMX is completed, it lights the carbon bomb that explodes the world past 1.5 degrees C yet our own government keeps that information from us. Come for the information to empower us to stamp out TMX and defuse the bomb.
