Subject: Entering the Energy & Environment Frontier (New Study)
As part of a scholar-in-residence program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC, between January and May 2013, Nik Nanos conducted energy policy research.
Canada and the US need to have a frank discussion on carbon policy and the environment, according to Nik Nanos.
The principal concept advanced in the paper is that the government should not pick energy winners and losers but focus on encouraging competition among energy sources within a common environmental standard. Also of note, decentralized sub-national environmental policy making on environmental, gridlock in Congress, and potential uncertainty in terms of the scope of recoverable energy resources should result in greater caution in favouring one energy source over another.
Promoting investment in a variety of technologies to recover and produce energy in an environmentally responsible manner will likely best minimize the long term energy and environmental policy risks.
The research also suggests that a comfortable majority of Americans support approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.

The findings and observations are based on a series of sources. These ranged from elite key consultation interviews with a variety of stakeholders in the United States, statistical data in the public domain on energy, media clippings, and original public opinion research among Americans and Canadians on energy issues.
