Liberal Leader Trudeau ‘Can’t Have It Both Ways’

Canadian Liberal leader Justin Trudeau can’t have it both ways when he supports expansion of the country’s oil pipeline network, while expressing a commitment to combat climate change, Dalhousie University physicist Thomas J. Duck says in an opinion piece on iPolitics.ca [1]. “Building new pipelines that would be expected to operate for 50 years or more is simply not consistent with a long-term strategy to combat climate change,” Duck writes. More pipelines transporting more oil faster would exacerbate climate change and “lock us into fossil fuel infrastructure, at a time when countries are making plans to move in another direction—in their own best interests. Our capital and human resources can be spent in better ways.”
