Nuclear industry welcomes G7 pledge to phase out fossil fuels
NucNet
The Group of Seven industrial powers' agreement to cut greenhouse gases by phasing out the use of fossil fuels by the end of the century is an "admirable initiative" that means all clean energy technologies, including nuclear, will have a role to play in the future energy mix, the nuclear industry has said.

Roseman: Report calls for ban on energy sales at home

And they cannot promise an easy exit from the contract if you overpay and decide to cancel early. In 2011, the Ontario government brought in an extensive new law — The Energy Consumer Protection Act — and backed it up with a strong enforcement campaign.

Energy Now
It may seem odd to hear Big Oil tout a policy that would make it costlier to do business. But experts say recent calls for a carbon tax have pragmatic — not just public relations — motivations. Michal Moore, an energy economist at the University of Calgary's School of Public Policy, said savvy companies see a higher price of carbon as "inevitable" and want to influence how those policies take shape.
