Join us on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 6:30-9pm at the Gleneagles Golf Club in West Vancouver as we listen to the truth about LNG and what it means for British Columbians. Local musician, Luke Wallace will kick off the evening with a performance from 6:30pm-7pm.
With over four decades of research in the energy sector including 32 years with the Geological Survey of Canada as a scientist and research manager, earth scientist David Hughes' work with the Post Carbon Institute includes a series of papers on the challenges of natural gas being a “bridge fuel” from coal to renewables and his most recent work Shale Gas Reality Check (2015) and Tight Oil Reality Check (2015). Separately from Post Carbon, Hughes authored BC LNG: A Reality Check in 2014 and A Clear View of BC LNG in 2015, which examined the issues surrounding a proposed massive scale-up of shale gas production in British Columbia for LNG export. David Hughes will be sharing his findings and uncovering a pattern of misinformation on LNG.
Marc Lee, Senior Economist and Project Director of the Climate Justice Project with the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA), will
discuss the purported employment estimates given by the LNG industry and how they are substantially lower than government claims.
Talks will be followed by a Q&A period.
