The first six months of the COVID-19 pandemic have exposed the costs of social inequalities and the short-sightedness of not taking action to prepare for crises that we know are coming.

This book takes a clear-eyed look at the ballooning risks and costs to British Columbians of fracking and LNG in our province, highlighting the need for evidence-based stewardship of our common resources – including taxpayer dollars – in the effort to  “build back better” post-pandemic.

With contributions from a remarkable collection of authors and experts – including David Hughes, Maude Barlow, Ben Parfitt, Eoin Finn, Mitchell Beer, and many more – this collection presents a spectrum of topics around the subject:

  • Economic analyses of the “business case” for LNG
  • Stories of the people, cultures, and livelihoods that are affected by BC’s gas industry
  • Glimpses into the number-crunching analysis required to assess the industry’s emissions and its impact on land and water
  • A look at the “Sacrifice Zone” in BC’s Northeast – including cumulative impacts, water, agriculture, and human health
  • Stories of opposition to fracking across Canada and around the world
  • Where to find to key studies and resources on the impacts of fracking and LNG
