The Alberta Government has promised a series of strategy announcements leading up to next month’s climate change talks in Paris. The Pembina Institute has experts that can examine in depth the potential impacts of these strategies to media audiences.
World leaders will converge on Paris next month for climate change talks. Alberta is developing a strategy to demonstrate its intention to contribute to the global imperative of tackling climate change. This joint call by over 40 organizations for an accelerated coal phase-out is appearing in newspapers across the province today.
A recent poll conducted by EKOS Research Associates on behalf of the Pembina Institute indicates that most Albertans want stronger climate change policies. A majority of those polled are in favour of reducing carbon emissions to address climate change, investing in renewables to reduce coal use and increasing support for clean energy and technology.
