Climate Change Stream
Highlights PD Days

This year’s Professional Development Days at the APEGGA Annual Conference will include a two-day stream on climate change, as well as a separate half-day session on coalbed methane and water resources. Climate Change Central, a public-private partnership that promotes the development of innovative responses to global climate change and its impacts, has helped APEGGA develop the climate change stream.

We’ve reprinted on pages 10 and 11 information gleaned from the March 2003 edition of C3 Views, the monthly newsletter published by Climate Change Central.

The lead article features Eddy Isaacs, managing director of the Alberta Energy Research Institute. Dr. Isaacs believes that, with the right industry and government policies and actions, Alberta will become an integrated energy economy. Dr. Isaacs brings the topic of oilsands development to the climate change stream. The next article provides a general introduction to the subject of clean coal.

And, on Page 11, the third article is an excerpt from a story quoting Mary Griffiths of the Pembina Institute, who says the term “clean coal” remains an exaggeration. Ms. Griffiths will be one of four speakers addressing the subject of coalbed methane and water resources at the conference.

These articles are reprinted with the recommendation of Climate Change Central and the permission of C3 staff. The opinions expressed in them are not necessarily those of APEGGA.
