APEGBC Vancouver Branch Breakfast Seminar: "BC's LNG: Untold Riches or Mere Mirage?".

The LNG system can be analyzed from many perspectives.  Dr. Dowlatabadi will review:
a) ecological impacts in BC;
b) air quality in Asia;
c) GHG mitigation and climate change;
d) profitability for corporations; and
e) social welfare for British Columbians.
This will provide the audience the information and context needed to weigh the pros and cons of the LNG “opportunity" for British Columbians.
