The Foreseeable Fall of Fossil Fuels (Ep. 10)

With Bay du Nord on hold, Newfoundland & Labrador is at a critical juncture on energy policy and climate change.

Despite the grim outlook for oil and gas, and amid climate breakdown, the Andrew Furey government continues to champion fossil fuel development.

As an investigation by The Independent unearthed, the Liberals have also quietly adopted an energy transition policy developed by consulting firm that seeks to prolong the life of the fossil fuel industry. We speak with author and climate/energy policy researcher Angela Carter, Conor Curtis of the Sierra Club Canada, and listen to a speech from the Sept. 15 student-led climate march in St. John’s organized by Fridays for Future.
