FOREST INK: Electrifying the logging industry

"...Switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy in the logging sector will require some major challenges and engineering developments but there are some positive moves taking place. My personal experience includes the purchase of an electric chainsaw which has proven superior in many ways to my old gas motor versions. I have also had the opportunity to drive an electric Nissan Leaf and was impressed by the regenerative braking ability to recover the charging of the battery on the down hill sections..."

One year after crude turned negative, oilpatch relishes first-quarter profit outlook

"...“Everyone was very, very negative on oil and oil demand,” he recalled in an interview, adding the remarkable level of stabilization since shows how resilient the oilpatch can be. “So the market essentially wound up balancing itself out and we had a recovery from the depths of hell to not quite to heaven in terms of current prices, but certainly a very large scale recovery. “Those two forces of supply and demand were brought back into a much better balance and with the demand recovery we’re seeing this year, we’re seeing inventories worldwide get drawn down to more normal levels..."

BLOG: A new twist on the carbon tax?

"...Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision that the federal carbon tax imposed by the Trudeau government is A-OK, and looking at a potential election call, Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole has proposed an alternative to the current national carbon tax. The proposed carbon tax alternative consists of a “carbon price” between $20 per tonne and $50 per tonne on fuels, paired with something called a “Personal Low Carbon Savings Account. ”On the surface, this sounds different than the usual carbon tax proposals we’ve seen over the last decade or so, but is this a new thing? Let’s take a quick break from the usual political wrangling and unpack this “new” idea..."

Differences in national food security best explained by household income, not agriculture

"...One of the most comprehensive statistical analyses of drivers of food insecurity across 65 countries has concluded that household income consistently explains more discrepancy in food security than any other factor, including agricultural land resources and production. The Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth study, "Cross-national analysis of food security drivers: comparing results based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale and Global Food Security Index," was recently published by the peer-reviewed journal Food Security..."
