The world according to Christy Clark. Keep your ibuprofen handy
H/t to one of RossK’s readers who posted this link over in the comments section at his site.
Listening to the premier talk about her plans for the province is always entertaining, but where it gets really funny on this one is at the 5:20 minute mark, where she goes on about how all this LNG we are going to be producing, is going to get shipped to China and will be displacing ‘dirty coal’ …… yes, she really does say that: dirty coal.
Would that be the same ‘dirty’ aka thermal coal coming up from the US, to be shipped out of the newly approved and highly controversial coal facility at Surrey Fraser Docks to China, among other parts of Asia ? The one her government is so much in favour of?
Or all the thermal coal we’ve been shipping from Deltaport and other terminals for years and years? And will BC stop shipping that thermal coal when ( and more likely if) BC LNG ever comes online? Not likely. So BC LNG is not going to do anything to make cleaner world in the air,least of which, in China.
That’s a facepalm moment if I ever saw one.
