PHM Canada signed on to the Environmental Defence Canada’s movement to push back against the ongoing subsidy of the fossil fuel industry through the promotion of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). This movement included the sending of messages to our elected officials and the public that said supporting CCS is not an acceptable answer to the climate challenge.
For those that may not know, Carbon Capture and Storage is a false solution to the climate crisis, doing little to reduce emissions while entrenching fossil energy systems and exacerbating environmental injustice in the communities already overburdened with toxic pollution. To add insult to injury, big polluters are already utilizing public subsidies to pay for captured CO2 and use it to make plastics and petrochemicals, exacerbating cycles of injustice.
