Climate scientists sign open letter against Pacific Northwest LNG

Ninety climate scientists from North America, the UK and Australia say the Canadian government must reject the Pacific NorthWest LNG project near Prince Rupert or scrap any hope of reaching climate change commitments.

The scientists, including University of Toronto academic Danny Harvey, say the $36-billion plant would be one of the country’s largest greenhouse gas emitters.

Harvey calls the draft environmental assessment for the project “superficial” and “incomplete” and believes it likely underestimates total greenhouse gas emissions.

In an open letter, the scientists disagree that LNG projects like Pacific NorthWest will be better for the environment by curbing coal use in Asia, and instead argue that selling liquefied natural gas to Asia could cut the production of renewable energy.
