Ritchie, Shawna; Roach, Robert
November 2011
Window on the West;Nov2011, p24
The article discusses the tension of the Canadian Energy Policy as it is selling fossil fuel resources to consumers that is adding too much of carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere. The stoppage of selling fossil fuel supply will increase the global price of energy which, in turn, will lead to a rise in the price of food and water. Deriving the wealth by selling the energy resources will enable Canada to forefront the innovations of renewable energy technologies for a greener world.
