This is an interesting paper.
Essentially the paper shows how a sinking fund for remediation of environmental impacts from the oil sector could ensure that the Canadian Oil Industry could have been built up for remediating abandoned wells. As no Such sinking fund has been established and maintained the paper goes on to Say that consequently, the Canadian Oil industry is insolvent as it does not have sufficient future positive cash flow enough to fulfill its mandatory remediation obligations.
The idea that the externalities of commercial enterprises should be Taxed or levied is not controversial what is controversial is the idea that such an important industry should be pushed over the edge, this aspect of the paper I find hard to understand.
The Collaborator on the project is a Green Party politician and it is good to see a Green looking at real environmental matters and “Calling them out”, Clive Spashes paper The Brave New World of Carbon trading remains a favorite “Calling out paper” of mine
Confronted with limited time which one would I choose to re-read, I am afraid to say its the Spash paper.

A century ago, however, Alberta was quite different. At the time, it had a budding social credit movement
whose goal was to make money creation public by wresting the supply of credit from private banks (see
Finkel, 1989 for details). In 1935, the Alberta Social Credit party even won a majority government. But

The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board listed the total oil field production at 704 million barrels (111.9×106 m3) as of August 2010. The same update listed the Proven and Probable estimated reserves as being 1,395 million barrels (221.8×106 m3) of oil.
Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s third largest oil producing province, producing about 4.4% of Canada’s petroleum in 2015. This consisted almost exclusively of light crude oil produced by offshore oil facilities on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. In 2015 these offshore fields produced an average of 27,373 cubic metres per day (172,000 bbl/d) of light crude oil.
- The Hibernia oil field is located approximately 315 kilometres (196 mi) east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland. The field was discovered in 1979 and has been producing since 1997. The Hibernia Gravity Base Structure is the world’s largest oil platform by weight since it has to withstand collisions by icebergs.
- The Terra Nova oil field is located 350 kilometres (220 mi) off the east coast of Newfoundland. The field was discovered in 1984 and has been producing since 2002. It uses a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel rather than a fixed platform to produce oil.
- The White Rose oil field is located 350 kilometres (220 mi) off the east coast of Newfoundland. The field was discovered in 1984 and has been producing since 2005. It uses a FPSO vessel to produce oil.

Who Do You Believe, and Why? One final thought, perhaps propaganda is the passing off , of Ontology as Epistemology or, belief as knowledge.

There has been an on-going tectonic shift in the West since the abandonment of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971. This accelerated when the USSR ended and has resulted in the ‘neoliberal globalization’ we see today.
