Wilkinson says there are two paths: one “accepts the scientific reality of climate change,” the other “is blind hope”

We’re still going to use oil and gas, but we’re not going to burn it. That is, except for power generation, coupled with carbon capture. We need to adapt to a net-zero economy by 2050, otherwise global investment will pass us by, in addition to the climate peril. We have to double the electrical grid, or more. People against everything need to get out of the way and let us build things. And we can’t just hope for the best.
Those were the key themes that federal Minister of Natural Resources Jonathan Wilkinson spoke about June 28.
