Canada’s Energy Future in an Age of Climate Change - Positive Energy Report Launch - March 2019

Positive Energy was delighted to launch its latest report Canada’s Energy Future in an Age of Climate Change: How Partisanship, Polarization and Parochialism are Eroding Public Confidence, where report authors Monica Gattinger and Michael Cleland presented the study, and thought leaders on Canadian energy and climate policy debated it.

Growing levels of political and economic uncertainty, partisanship, parochialism and polarization within and beyond Canada are creating an increasingly challenging environment for those charting Canada’s energy future. In this timely study, Cleland and Gattinger articulate why Canada is facing these challenges, what their impacts are on public confidence in energy and climate decision-makers, and what needs to be done to move forward.
