Angus Reid has just released some eye-popping numbers in a poll that asked Canadians whether they thought there was a "crisis or not" due to a "lack of oil pipeline capacity in Canada."
The poll was released after The Tyee reported on the Alberta government's $23 million public relations offensive promoting fossil fuel infrastructure expansion, that also appears to feature a slick "ethnic campaign."
We noticed the poll seemed to be missing a few key questions about issues such as climate change, environmental liabilities and the clean economy, so we thought we'd help them out and do some online polls of our own.
The polls below, are, of course, not scientific, but we thought it might be fun anyway.
And if you missed them, check out our stories on the Alberta regulator's private estimates of the oilpatch's financial liabilities, the warning from the world’s leading climate scientists that we have a dozen years left, the Ontario government's cancellation of 758 green energy contracts, and a scientific study showing how climate change is aggrevating risks to Canada's boreal forest.
Do you think the IPCC's recent warnings that the world has only 12 years left to prevent some of the worst impacts of climate change is a crisis or not?— National Observer (@NatObserver) January 16, 2019
Do you think the fact that large portions of Canada’s forests are at risk of dying off as climate change aggravates wildfires, droughts and infestations is a crisis or not?— National Observer (@NatObserver) January 16, 2019
