Ksi Lisims LNG, an Indigenous-owned floating gas liquefaction facility proposed in British Columbia, has secured a 20-year deal to sell some of its product to colossal fossil Shell, even as global LNG markets wither.

New database shows 12 fossil fuel companies employ ex-ministers, staff

It’s called the “revolving door” and it’s been a problem in B.C. for years, with corporations hiring former cabinet ministers and senior bureaucrats as lobbyists.

These government insiders go back to the same offices where they used to work, only now they’re paid to influence policy decisions in favour of industry. Thanks to a new database, this back-and-forth is now easier to track and quantify.

Puget Sound Energy has canceled a controversial expansion of its liquefied natural gas plant in Tacoma.

The Puyallup Tribe of Indians and a coalition of community groups appealed permits for the project to the state Shoreline Hearings Board. The case had been scheduled for an April hearing, but rather than defend the project, PSE backed down.

Just as climate policies begin to work, the government is being pressured to gut them.

"When it comes to the impact on the climate, Dr Canadell says these fire emissions — though significant — are barely a blip on the radar compared with the decades of accumulated emissions caused by the fossil fuel industry."

Just six days in to the northern hemisphere summer of 2023, the skyline in New York City was stained in a sepia smoke haze.

It was streaming from across the border, where, what became Canada's most widespread fires in history, were raging.

And the fires did not let up for months.

Seeing carbon capture and storage as “a way to compensate for ongoing fossil fuel burning is economically illiterate,” concludes an Oxford University study.

One can only imagine the positive buzz these days inside the boardrooms of Canada’s oil companies, as they rake in record profits and plan major expansions of their oil production.

Internal government memos show TC Energy lobbied for carveouts exempting methane and LNG plants from one of Canada’s key climate policies targeting the oil and gas industry

One of Canada’s largest pipeline operators lobbied the federal government to exclude two major sources of carbon pollution from its emissions cap for the oil and gas sector.

A shadowy new organization attacking the climate efforts of Canadian cities is infiltrating Google searches and ads in the New York Times and other publications online.

The group — Voice for Energy — bills itself as a platform for Canadians to "speak up" against municipalities implementing measures to reduce or ban natural gas to "protect" people’s so-called "energy choice."
