An important story is brewing in Canada's Alberta Tarsands and with the new "left wing" New Democratic Party of Rachel Notley. She recently announced a deal with Big Oil to enlarge tarsands production with the support of Forest Ethics, Pembina Institute, Equiterre and even Greenpeace Canada. See article and links below that point to evidence of a split within fossil fuel capital and the "environmental movement".
It was quite a sight: The CEOs of Alberta’s oilsands projects stood with NDP Premier Rachel Notley to announce Alberta’s climate plan before the climate talks in Paris. The CEOs had the widest smiles.
No wonder. Alberta’s climate plan targets the 28 per cent of Alberta’s greenhouse gases from power generation and transportation (driving), and leaves the 46 per cent of the province’s emissions from the production of oil and gas almost scot-free.
