Albertan Attitudes Toward Energy Transition

On our first episode of Season 5, Sara and Ed speak to Dr. Melanee Thomas (https://profiles.ucalgary.ca/melanee-thomas) of the University of Calgary about her survey research into Albertans’ attitudes to the energy transition, the oil and gas industry, coal and climate change. David wasn’t able to join us for this one, but he’ll be back live for Episode 2.
