Episode 036: Mollie Johnson and Natural Resources Canada’s Net Zero role Flux Capacitor

    • Non-Profit

Recorded on Zoom in June 2021, episode 36 is the third in a series of podcasts seeking to unpack Canada’s Net Zero 2050 greenhouse gas target. For this episode, Mollie Johnson, NRCan’s Assistant Deputy Minister - Low Carbon Energy Sector, discusses Net Zero by 2050 from a government of Canada perspective. In my conversation with Mollie, we discuss what the Low Carbon Sector is, and the prospects for energy and electricity as Canada pursues its GHG targets. We also talk about Canadian GHG reduction aspirations in an international context, both challenges and opportunities. And, once again, the conversation wraps with a book recommendation; in this case, Mollie recommends a book for young readers.
