‘From Miracle to Menace – Alberta, A Carbon Story’

If it unfolds as we’re told it must, climate change will result in the greatest economic disruption in world history.
Alberta has become ground zero for the future of the world’s oil and gas producing regions. It will be painful, it will be expensive, and it will be ugly.
Except this massive adjustment to a low-carbon society is only happening in Alberta. Every other major oil producer of the world is doing what it can to keep up with rising demand.
