Climate Change Protestor Calls For Green Component To Energy East Pipeline

One of the climate change rallies across the county was staged outside the office of Saint John M-P Rodney Weston on King Street. 

One of the protestors was Christian Tschirhart of the North-South Institute in Ottawa. Surprisingly, he's not against construction of the Energy East pipeline provided the project which includes a green energy industrial park which Tschirhart predicts will last longer than the pipeline with unlimited solar and wind power. 

He warns the oil sands and shale gas are putting our water resources in jeopardy.

At the present time, global subsidies for fossil fuels are five times higher than for renewable forms of energy, according to former Irish President Mary Robinson who now heads a climate change foundation.
