Lang Michener Environment, Energy & Emissions Trading Brief Summer 2009 (New!!!)


In this inaugural issue of Environment, Energy & Emissions Trading Brief, Henry Krupa provides a synopsis of Ontario’s Green Energy and Green Economy Act, which will foster renewable energy projects and promote energy conservation in Ontario, among other things. Then, David Thring discusses the Ontario government’s proposed legislation to establish a cap and trade system to reduce greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions, and considers the federal government’s discussion papers that propose rules for generating GHG offset credits. Karl Gustafson discusses B.C.’s carbon tax, just one aspect of B.C.’s Climate Action Plan. David Young considers the impact of the U.S.’s clean energy initiatives on one of Canada’s major trade exports. Finally, Cyndee Todgham Cherniak and Peter Wells explain the notion of “greenwashing” as it applies to the kraft wood pulping process and its byproduct, “black liquor” biofuel.
