In a world still largely dependent on fossil fuels, calls for a transition from the fossil fuel economy have been met with considerable resistance. The Keystone XL pipeline and the Canadian tar sands have become symbols of the dissension over America’s energy future. In his book, The Pipeline and the Paradigm, Samuel Avery writes that the project has inspired the largest expression of civil disobedience since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

The U.S. State Department recently moved the project one step closer to final approval; however, it is fiercely opposed by many Democrats and environmentalists. Canadian energy company Enbridge is proposing a separate pipeline that would carry the fuel to British Columbia where it would be shipped to Asia.

What would the pipelines mean for both the American and Canadian economies? If the tar sands are further developed what will be the climate impacts? A conversation on matching energy supply and demand in a carbon constrained world.
