Another Nail in the Coffin of Carbon Energy

While Statoil hasn’t fully divested from carbon energy, every little/big drift away from more carbon energy gets us closer to the Post-Carbon Energy Infrastructure!

As we pivot to a new, cleaner world despite Trump, Trudeau and BC’s carbon-loving Christy Clark, we need to applaud every effort like this. When the people lead, the leaders will follow.

Let’s make 2017 the most effective year of applied optimism and engagement any of us has ever lived in!

Norwegian state-owned oil and gas company Statoil recently pulled all its investments out of the Alberta tar sands after winning a contract to develop an offshore wind farm in U.S. waters. CleanTechnica reports the company began selling off its tar sands assets almost within hours of learning earlier this month it had won the right to build a wind farm off the coast of New York State.
