There are issues surrounding
all aspects of resource development. For instance, what is sustainable
development? If you ask a forest ecologist and the CEO of a forestry company,
you will get entirely different answers. What happens when two industries need
access to the same land for resource development? Is agriculture really
sustainable? What does the famous Kyoto agreement on climate change mean for
Albertans and the industries that develop our natural resources?
this section we explore only some of these issues and hope to broaden your
awareness a bit as to some of the major topics of contention that come with the
development of our natural resources. David Dodge's EcoFiles highlight
each one of these issues, so listen in to hear more of the story!
