Following Ulysse Bergeron’s article in The duty on Tuesday, I welcome the ambitious yet essential initiative of Hydro-Québec and Énergir to want, through a dual-energy conversion program, to reduce GHG emissions by 70% by 2030 in residential buildings, commercial and institutional.

The question I have been asking myself for ages: why do we allow, in the current climate emergency, the installation in new housing projects and other buildings of the hardware necessary to supply natural gas? Why should the state, through its corporation, not promote the hydroelectricity it owns rather than let the private fossil fuel company quietly continue its destructive activities of the environment? The State, if it had the courage that the climatic situation requires, could also, in addition to prohibiting by decree new gas installations, more vigorously promote green energies, such as wind, solar and geothermal energy. . Finally, to be consistent with itself and not to remain in a passive attitude in the face of the collapse of the planet’s ecosystems that we are currently witnessing, the Quebec state should oppose the LNG project as well as any other project. where it is a question of fossil fuel and immediately initiate this environmental shift essential to our survival on this magnificent and fragile blue planet.
