- Again, Shawn McCarthy reported here on Wall's new declaration that he won't accept carbon pricing or regulation of any kind. And CBC reported here on his desire for federal stimulus dollars to go toward shuttering and cleaning up oil wells (and thereby taking their former operators off the hook).
- Tracy Johnson reports on the recent declaration by Saudi Arabia's oil minister Ali al-Naimi that the world's cheapest producers will be keeping the taps open rather than cutting down production to boost prices. And Yadullah Hussein follows up by pointing out the resulting plunge in oil prices.
- Finally, Paul Hanley rightly raises the point that we should be lessening our reliance on the oil sector in general.
