Mission Transition: Powering BC’s Clean Energy Economy

British Columbia is entering a new economy based on clean energy. What role will workers, technology, Indigenous communities and businesses play in this next economy? Who will pay for it? How will you take part?

Mission Transition is a podcast that explores this exciting transition to the new clean energy economy. This new mini-series from Sierra Club BC brings you stories from innovators across the province who are moving ahead with solutions for housing, transportation and renewable power.

Moving beyond fossil fuels to the next economy is an opportunity to think about the ways we work, the ways we live and our values for the future. Your hosts Caitlyn Vernon and Susan Elrington hear from workers, business owners and everyday people—while busting common clean energy myths.

How much money are you spending to subsidize the fossil fuel industry?

A lot, it turns out! Federal subsidies to oil and gas corporations have been pegged at $3.3 billion per year. Yes, you read that right. And the BC government offers provincial subsidies to oil and gas corporations to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars per year, in the form of royalty reductions.

What else could we do with that money? How about building the infrastructure to move away from fossil fuels altogether, and supporting communities through this transition?

The new BC government promised to make climate solutions a priority. Now’s the time for action to end massive handouts in subsidies to the oil and gas industry, and invest in the clean energy economy instead.

Please call on Premier Horgan and BC’s environment and energy ministers to keep their promise to move BC toward a green economy with well-paying jobs across the province.

Climate Action in BC

Here in BC, we must do our part to tackle the growing climate crisis. We need everyone including the provincial government, businesses, communities and individuals to take action.

Sierra Club BC used the best available science to produce The Future is Here, a report outlining a clear and comprehensive path for BC to tackle climate change. Learn about our 10-step plan for climate action in BC in our report The Future is Here.

Putting Fossil Fuels to the Test

We advocate for our provincial and federal governments to implement a climate test to measure proposed energy projects against their climate impacts.

This will involve consideration of the proposals’ emissions, from extraction to transportation to eventual consumption, and whether there are more climate-friendly alternatives. If a proposal doesn’t pass the test, it doesn’t go ahead.
