About the Series


This Tyee Solutions Society series sets out to consider just what B.C.’s four-year-old Climate Action Plan has and hasn’t accomplished so far, including what informed observers say deserves rethinking. Veteran journalists Chris Pollon and Tom Barrett take the measure of Carbon Plan support — or not — in today’s political context; look in on how B.C.’s unique-in-North-America carbon tax is working out; pull back the curtain on the mysterious world of carbon “offsets”; and more.
