This is a news compilation setting the record straight on the day’s top stories about the oil and gas industry.
Today, the foreign funded radical ‘news’ organization, The Tyee, published an article inciting Canadian politicians to take hardline stances against the oil and gas industry. While politicians in the U.S. are touting implausible and impractical plans to shut down hydrocarbon production, Canadians don’t want to risk eliminating the number #1 killer of poverty.
Here are some reasons why ‘Big Oil’ benefits society:
- By being the number #1 contributor of environmental spending in Canada, the oil and gas industry has committed itself to a better, greener world.
- When Canada exports our better produced and higher standard hydrocarbons, we have a positive impact on reducing global emissions.
- Indigenous people are an important aspect of the oil and gas industry. The partnerships and agreements forged with these groups, solidify trust and get important projects built.
Instead of trying to get politicians to fight the oil and gas industry, The Tyee should be focused on plans that already reduce global emissions and eliminate poverty and not the bias of their donors. Something Canadian oil and gas has been doing for decades.
Every party leader should be supporting the industry.
- The Conservative Party of Canada’s climate plan is the only one that involves displacing global emissions by exporting our technology and high standard products.
- Canada’s oil and gas sector has the highest standards and regulations in the world which provides reliable and sustainable energy
Greens vision of Canada is inconsistent with reality.
- Demand for hydrocarbons is going to be growing past 2040. Canada needs to be the supplier of reliable energy to help developing nations lift people out of energy poverty.
- Putting all our eggs in the renewables basket risks an ecological collapse. There will have to be an exponential increase in mining to provide the minerals needed. We need to take an all of the above approach to balancing our economy and environment.
- Carbon taxes shift production and emissions to other countries and jeopardizes our industry which leads to businesses moving or shutting down.
- Bill C-69, will make the regulatory system for major projects subjective and uncertain, raising questions about future pipeline projects.
Hydrocarbons will be a main source of energy for decades.
- Even in the greatest outlook scenario, oil and gas will still dominate the energy demand and supply curve despite these reports.
- Hydrocarbons have the highest energy produced per unit than alternative energy sources providing more energy for less, including less money.
