BC, Canada paying for fossil fuel cleanup
Just to make it painfully clear: this is what the #LPC is spending economic recovery money on: subsidizing oil and gas companies.
Not spending it on enforcing oil and gas companies doing what they are supposed to pay for: cleaning up.
Not spending it on building a post-carbon economy.
Pardon the rant.

Canada lobbying Mexico re: energy
How unexpected corporations might be interested in supporting #renewable #energy! Actually, it may just be opposing nationalism. Because societies which favor state-run utilities like social medicine and energy are all complete failures, just look at Norway, China, and New Zealand!

"The world’s biggest #forest is in our own backyard and we need to protect it
#Canada’s immense #boreal forest covers half of the country and is the largest intact forest in the world. It influences the planet’s #climate, temperature, and #oceans, but only a fraction is preserved."
After borrowing to cover its #dividend, the #FossilFuel giant was forced in SEC filings to write off 30% of its 'proved reserves', mostly in #Canada #tarsands and #US #fracking. Earlier in the month the company reported a 22.4 billion USD loss on 2020.
The #US private #University had the 57th largest endowment in the country. While the university, motivated by students and faculty, is moving to #divest from coal and tarsands, they do not plan to elminate #FossilFuel companies from their portfolios, but asked their investment managers to consider #environment, #social, and #governance when investing.

Québec + California's Carbon Market auction returns
This auction generated 190 million CAD for Québec, which goes into the Electrification and Climate Change Fund, and brings the total income from the carbon market for the province to 4.5 Billion CAD . Pretty soon it adds up to real money.
USA raises Carbon cost to 51 USD/ton
The administration temporarily increased the “social cost” of carbon, climate-concerned economists say the number is not nearly high enough to meet #Paris goals."
A simplistic overview, yet it highlights the risks for the #FossilFuel industries and the nations which rely on them from an investment point of view. And in that view, #oil is not going away, though it will undergo a sea change.
US Pol, Impeachment
Half of the voting population insist they must.
Half of the voting population insist they must not.
But the evidence is reasonably clear that Mr. #Trump did, indeed, incite the protesters to act violently against Congress. And the oaths sworn by Senators should find him guilty of impeachable offenses.
And we assume more than ⅓ are so dishonorable as to violate that oath. Which is sad.
