11. The Oil Patch Conundrum

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Chris Turner in conversation with Ian Gill

Chris Turner has travelled the globe in search of hope for a sustainable future, and exposed former Prime Minister Harper’s war on science. An authoritative voice on the global cleantech boom, Turner now turns his focus to the Alberta oil sands, and the people there who’ve seen the boom and the bust, and now face its uncertain future. The result is not a diatribe against exploiting the second largest proven reserve of oil, but rather an exploration of how deeply it affects individual lives around the world, from the families of Fort McMurray to the financiers in London or Saudi Arabia. With no easy answer in hand, Turner forces us to ask the question: In order to both fuel the world, and to save it, what do we do about the Oil Patch?
