*Veuillez noter que le discours Eakin sera présenté en anglais:
Balancing "Competing" Interests: How Albertans Think about Energy Transition
During the 2019 federal election, while some Canadians demonstrated unprecedented concern about the environment, others presented action on the environment as an “existential” threat to economic prosperity, particularly for provinces like Alberta. In this semester’s Eakin Lecture, Visiting Fellow Melanee Thomas will present a research-based argument for why it is in Canada’s, and particularly Alberta’s interest to seriously plan for transitioning away from fossil fuels. Her project will examine who is most (and least) likely to be part of a conversation about the need for transition, and how malleable their opinions are. What makes people supportive of energy transition, from fossil fuels toward more renewable sources of energy?
