The ReIGNITE Talks
The ReIGNITE Talks is a webinar series that’s re-thinking and re-imagining our planet. Join us each month, as Environmental Defence aims to make sense of the world from an environmental perspective. We’ll hear from thought-leaders and change-makers on topics ranging from pollution, to health, to climate change - all while finding real-world solutions towards a sustainable future.
Join us for our third episode, as we untangle the myths of Canada's oil economy. Growing carbon emissions; thousands of abandoned wells; huge unpaid municipal taxes; a shrinking workforce: the liabilities from Canada’s oil patch keep adding up. Regulators are even debating dumping toxic wastewater back into the Athabasca River. Despite all this, the oil lobby insists that what is good for oil is good for Canada, and will be for years to come. And, they spend millions in lobbying and misleading advertising every year. The Alberta government has even launched multiple initiatives designed to silence critics of the industry. Join us as our panel looks at Big Oil’s biggest myths, and how we can untangle ourselves from their plans.
