A recent headline in the Globe and Mail summed it up well: “Business risk from climate change now top of mind for Canada’s corporate boards.” There’s a reason Canada’s business leaders are prioritizing climate change: it’s going to cost companies, our economy and Canadians. Despite this fact, not everyone sees a need for regulations to…

1. The federal government is developing a Clean Fuel Standard. In short: it will make the fuels that heat our homes and power our cars cleaner. It’s also the single biggest carbon-fighting policy in Canada’s national climate plan, aiming to reduce carbon pollution by 30 million tonnes in 2030. That’s equal to taking more than…

If you follow climate policy in Canada, there’s a good chance you already know the name Andrew Leach. The Edmonton-based associate professor is an energy and environmental economist at the University of Alberta. He also chaired the panel whose recommendations underpinned Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan. But you may know Leach best for his Twitter account,…

Merran Smith and Dan Woynillowicz at a solar panel manufacturing facility in China. Clean Energy Canada, 2017.

Last month marked the completion of what’s likely the world’s largest floating solar power farm—on a flooded coal-mining town, no less. And I probably don’t need to tell you where it was built, but I will anyway. China, of course, with its monumental displays of spinning wind turbines and horizon-reaching fields of solar panels. But…

Polling on taxes is always a bit fraught—people aren’t typically predisposed to wanting higher ones. What’s more, when it comes to carbon pricing, how a government goes about pricing pollution and what it does with the revenue is inherently complex. So polling on the subject is tricky, and unfortunately often leads to polls that aren’t…

If the global clean energy transition were a music festival, China would be dominating the main stage. In the past five years alone, China has invested over half-a-trillion dollars in renewables. That clean energy building spree has propelled the country to superstar status—a remarkable feat considering that, until recently, China was easy to dismiss as…

The Clean Energy Ministerial held in Beijing, China, earlier this month drew some of the world’s A-list climate and clean energy experts. Among them was Christiana Figueres, the former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (the body responsible for tracking and coordinating countries’ efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under…

  The transition to clean energy, it turns out, may not actually be that controversial. Two-thirds of Canadians now say we ought to prioritize growing our economy in ways that don’t involve fossil fuels, according to a poll that came out this month from Abacus Data. But when you look at worldwide trends, it’s no…

We look forward to hearing from you.
