Emissions-free by 2050

Matt McCarville, steering committee member of Don’t Frack PEI, has an article in The Guardian (Charlottetown) re-stating the need for, and benefits of, transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2050. The PEI Standing Committee on Infrastructure and Energy recommends “that P.E.I.’s new energy strategy include an overarching goal of transitioning to 100 per cent use of renewable wind, solar, and water power for all purposes by 2050 at the latest” and Matt urges the government to press forward as this is the only way we stand a chance of reaching the target set by the COP 21 Paris Agreement, which came into force in October.
