In this highly readable introduction, Energy in Canada examines the history of energy production and consumption leading to the impending energy "crisis." What policy decisions have been made along the way and in whose interest? From the Alberta oil sands to offshore drilling in Newfoundland and Labrador, author Peter Sinclair delves into the hot button issues that affect Canadians today. Looking ahead, he points to which alternative and renewable energies we may rely on and the environmental, social, and political pressures that are increasingly pushing Canadians toward a critical change.
Author Peter Sinclair is a research professor of sociology at Memorial University, Newfoundland. He has co-authored and edited a dozen books on environmental issues that affect Canada today. In 2005 he was the recipient of the Award for Outstanding Contribution to Canadian Sociology from the Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association.
