I’d like to extend an invitation for you to join a video conference call with me tomorrow morning at 10:00 am Mountain, courtesy of Victoria-based Markham Hislop of EnergiMedia.
Markham joined our Suits and BootsCross Canada Resource Sector Tour event in Vancouver last November. He is a very knowledgeable commentator on energy issues. Markham and I agree on some issues, disagree on others, and are both interested in advancing intelligent and informed conversation on Canada’s resource sector, with an emphasis on energy issues. He’s highly critical of the current Alberta government’s approach to energy issues at times, but also believes that Alberta’s provinces largest energy companies are at the leading edge of advancing global clean technology and reducing GHG emissions.
Markham hosts a daily “Zoffee with Markham” (coffee on the Zoom video conference platform) for the subscribers to his newsletter, and has invited me to join him tomorrow, Friday, May 1st, at 10:00 am. I’ll be with Markham for a 20-minute Zoom chat session followed by an open Q&A session from his audience.
Here’s what we’ll touch on during our Zoffee conversation:
- Michael Moore’s Plant of the Humans video: if you haven’t heard about this documentary, or seen it yet, you can view by clicking here. This film is highly critical of the green energy movement and many of its organizations and has stirred predictable controversy. Many people in the energy sector love it. Others find it outdated and wildly inaccurate. Markham says it’s “a horrible film” and that after reading several critiques of it, says “it appears to be utterly dishonest”. Check it out, judge for yourself, and then listen to what we say about it tomorrow morning. You won’t want to miss this.
- I’ll have Calgary-based energy executive and investment banker Cam Bailey with me on the call. Cam and I put together an op-ed for the Financial Post on how Canadian energy companies are being penalized by flawed environmental, social and governance (ESG) screens that global investment managers are using to make decisions that affect the operations and financing of large resource companies. So Cam and Markham and I will address this issue of ESG screens, the conflicts-of-interest and heavy environmental group lobbying that they seem to attract, and find out what can be done to change this around. Here is the Financial Post article that I wrote on this issue with input from Cam Bailey.
There is limited “seating” for Markham’s event on Friday morning. He keeps these to a maximum of 100 viewers/participants – so he has set aside 40 spots for Suits and Boots members tomorrow morning.
If you’d like to join in this 10 am Mountain video conference call, please let me know by return email. I will then send you the link and the password to get into the call. If you don’t already have the Zoom platform on your laptop, pad or phone – you can download it here .
Hope we can fill all 40 spots with Suits and Boots supporters tomorrow morning. This is going to be a great event – huge thanks to Markham for having us with him.
As always, please spread the word for us, and help us along with donations if and when you can. You’ll hear more details about our ESG campaign on the call tomorrow – that’s where your donations will be doing.
