Laser Talk: Pipelines

LASER TALK: Pipelines

CCL does not advocate for or against pipelines. We are for carbon pricing, which includes phasing out fossil fuel subsidies and this includes not using our taxpayer dollars to build or refurbish pipelines. We truly appreciate the work of the land defenders as their work allows us to focus on carbon pricing and thus we have more time to savour the planet.

As the adage says, “He who runs after two hares will catch neither.”

Also consider that it is likely that a clear and incrementally rising carbon price will disincentivize the building of fossil fuel infrastructure and perhaps that is why there is so much resistance to effective carbon pricing among some institutions aligned with the fossil fuel industry.
