Changing The Narrative Around Energy & Climate: A Discussion with the Experts

December 22, 2018

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we look at the future of Canada's energy industry, and the ongoing transition to low-carbon sources of energy. Join Colin in conversation with five noted energy experts -- Michael Cleland, Dave Collyer, John Dillon, Monica Gattiner, and Ken Ogilvie -- for an in-depth discussion on Canada's energy narrative, the solutions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the need to transition to low-carbon energy sources in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. This Podcast builds off a recent CGAI Policy Update on cgai.ca entitled "A Value Proposition and Narrative for Energy and Climate in Canada".
