With Canadas long-standing energy partnership with the United States at a low point over disagreements on pipelines, climate change and oil sands development, the British are as eager as ever to step in and strengthen ties.
Michael Fallon, energy minister in David Camerons conservative government, was in Calgary Thursday to promote U.K./Canada energy cooperation including learning from Canadas leadership in carbon capture and storage, promoting more mutual investment and encouraging Canadian oil and gas exports to boost British and European energy security.
Canada is a very important and a very welcome investor in our energy mix, Mr. Fallon said in an interview during a day long-visit that included meetings with British companies active in Canada such as Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Centrica PLC, and Canadian companies active in the U.K. including Talisman Energy Inc. and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.

No point in dealing with the US if the US doesn’t want to deal with Canada. Maybe we’ll build a pipeline straight to Great Britain. :)
Wait, so the Canadians, who have become pretty smart on government budget balancing and fiscal prudence, are dumb enough to be getting involved in carbon taxes and carbon capture schemes? Just damn.
Not according to Uncle Sam. He would rather deal with Venezuela.
So much for Venezuela.
The Brits have become Islamistards. Screw’em.
It’s only being done under duress.
There are nearly as many Muslims in the U.S. as there are in the U.K. (2.6 million vs. 2.8 million).
You perpetuate the basic idea that ‘Yanks’ are stupid and uncouth. Nice job.
Obama could not pull this off without the steadfast backing of most of the dem party, especially the leadership. Ultimately the American people elected an anti-growth, anti-energy, anti-American president. He is acting accordingly.
Wow look at that. What caused that flat/dropping consumption?
