Making a transition to ‘green energy’ for a sustainable society is going to be a horrendous challenge fraught with fierce debates and painful choices. But then, without a sufficiently timely shift in how we ‘navigate’ our civilization through a growing sea of risks, driven by global warming and other environmental degradation, we are in for a hell of time anyway.
On June 8 Tuesday at 1:00-2:00PM, the Group of 78 will host a panel to discuss some of the perspectives.

|Outline:We will be discussing the nature and extent of funding from governments in Canada (federal and provincial) for fossil fuel production. Funding comes in different guises—including direct financing, loan insurance, subsidies and tax breaks. Our contention is that these various sources of financing should be identified and phased out as quickly as possible and reallocated to green technology and renewable energy.|
