On Oct 30, the Board of Change hosted a debate in Vancouver on American energy pipeline giant Kinder Morgan's plans to turn Vancouver into a shipping port to access new foreign markets with Alberta Tar Sands bitumen. The company wants to build a new 450,000 barrel per day pipeline to Burrard Inlet and increase tanker traffic by 20 fold what it was up until recently. Hear both sides of the story as representatives of Kinder Morgan and the shipping industry square off against an environmental activist, lawyer and filmmaker over the future of the world's "Greenest City", the province of BC and the planet. Told here in 5 parts (scroll down).

WE all know that oil is finite ,we should be rationing fuel ,regulating the use of the burning of fossil fuels ,ie cars and trucks . Not subsidizing the auto industry, we should not export any fuel , as we would be a strong nation to be able to still have fuel to burn in a 100 yrs . Stop making the internal combustion engine ,it is killing us . Start subsidizing the alternative energy sector .

Tremendous informative resource you've provided..
I wish now, that I had taken written notes.. rather than just observed, listened, learned. Has this exceptional session been transcribed ? That would extend the value.
I'm sure you look back on this.. and wish there had been more time, more questions, more answers..
I'll use this resource to help shape my perspectives, questions, indignation.. my personal evaluation or risk analysis..
