Recommended Read: After the Sands

This week we're recommending After the Sands: Energy and Ecological Security for Canadians by Gordon Laxer.

From the publisher Douglas & McIntyre: “Canada has all the conventional, non-fracked oil and natural gas needed to transition to a low-carbon future. Remarkable hydro-power gives Canadians a large base of renewable energy, which can be expanded with wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. Few countries have these options in adequate quantities. So what's the problem? Why do we continue to harm the environment? How do we overcome the power of vested interests and untangle the corporate trade agreements that block Canadians from getting secure and fair access to the country's own energy resources. Can Canada meet international emissions targets if it does not phase out Alberta Sands oil?

Impeccably researched, After the Sands is critical reading for anyone concerned about rising sea levels, pipeline and tanker spills, climate change chaos and Canada's future in a carbon restricted world.”
