Counter Energy Conference Ends With Dire Warning

New Brunswick has a choice between extreme energy and renewable clean energy. That, from Mark D'Arcy as the "Energy for Everyone" conference ended with the warning that two-thirds of fossil fuels must stay in the ground or we face catastrophic climate change.

 D'Arcy tells CHSJ News the Premier is doing away with environmental protection to press forward with shale gas development.

D'Arcy says that warning about keeping the bulk of fossil fuels in the ground comes from such reputable organisations as the World Bank, the International Energy Agency along with Price, Waterhouse, Coopers.

D'Arcy of the Council of Canadians who predicts there will be growing opposition to shale gas exploration and he doesn't think New Brunswickers will allow it to happen.

He adds extreme energy extraction only benefits a few big corporations but not the populace as a whole.
