Canadian Oil Sands: Energy Security vs. Climate Change
The Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) recent report The Canadian Oil Sands: Energy Security vs. Climate Change explores the tensions between energy security and climate change surrounding the Canadian oil sands and provides policy recommendations to address these two interests. The study urges U.S. policymakers to “resist the misuse of other U.S. environmental regulations to constrain oil sands.” It notes that “ill-conceived regulation could undermine U.S. and Canadian climate and security goals.” For more information on this study, see CFR’s overview or download the study here (May 2009).
