LEGAL OPINION — International obligations governing Canada’s development of new liquefied natural gas production capacity in light of the climate change emergency
This legal opinion examines the implications under international law of a package of measures introduced by the Government of British Columbia and the Government of Canada to support, enable and promote gas production and transport through construction of LNG terminals and associated infrastructure, mainly for export to Asian markets.
REPORT SUMMARY — Burning Bridge: Debunking LNG As A Climate Solution
This report summary shares key take-aways from Burning Bridge report which covers the science on the climate impacts of natural gas/LNG, the necessary reductions in gas/LNG supply and demand under the Paris Agreement and how this disqualifies Canadian liquefied natural gas as a climate solution.
Burning Bridge: Debunking LNG as a Climate Solution
Fossil gas, marketed as “natural gas” and its liquefied form, “liquefied natural gas” (LNG), have been proposed as a middle ground between more carbon-intensive fossil fuels and renewable energy. This report finds that exporting B.C. LNG makes the climate crisis worse, not better.
