A 75-minute presentation on the global energy transition and its potential impact on Alberta. I will use a simple model to explain the transition that teachers can adapt for their own teaching (I presented this model for a recent Green Teacher Magazine webinar: https://greenteacher.com/webinar-1-a-simple-model-for-teaching-the-energy-transition/). I will also draw from the Global Energy Transition learning module I have developed in conjunction with Prof. Mark Winfield of York University; the module is intended for high school and university undergraduates, and will be available in December. The conclusion of my presentation is that there can be a future for the Alberta oil and gas industry in a low-carbon future if both government and industry pursue a post-combustion strategy (essentially, making materials from oil sands bitumen and blue hydrogen from natural gas).
