Energy Policies in British Columbia

  • Robert McClelland


Rather than discuss the scientific intricacies of methane as covered in other chapters, I would like to describe the energy policies being carried out by the Government of British Columbia. I do not believe that our society has fully arrived at a state of energy consciousness, even though the words themselves have become part of almost everyone’s vocabulary. Even now, eight years after OPEC first set off the alarm clock, North America has not quite woken up to the realities and the opportunities of the energy challenge. But we are waking up fast — and at least we are no longer wrapped in dreams of abundant cheap energy resources gained without effort or sacrifice.
