Environmental impacts and technological advances both affect Canada's energy world. Reduced USA oil consumption, because of better vehicles and lower consumption, concerns over pipelines and ocean shipping of viscous crude oil, the higher carbon impact of bitumen, and a focus on land disturbance issues in the Fort McMurray open pit mining region, all have effects on Canada's energy future. Where should pipelines go? Maurice Dusseault will introduce you to fossil energy issues in Canada, explaining what is happening because of these processes. Canada's future is changing; it is better to be informed than unprepared. For more information please download the Lecture pamphlet: Dusseault Lecture Abstract
