Marsh of Encana: "We seek to find the perfect energy portfolio today." Nat gas as dominant achieves right eco and enviro blend. That big natural gas shift would mean 13% drop of CO2, 14% drop in Sufur dioxide, 38% drop in Nitrogen Oxides.

Will COSIA, the new oil sands environment research sharing initiative, make a difference to emissions, water, land impacts? How is COSIA different? Member CEO support and tech sharing "unprecedented" according to COSIA CEO Dan Wicklum. Dan Wicklum CEO of COSIA_ca: Oil sands CEOs recognized that they were not doing enough for environment. Jim Rogers, CEO of U.S. Power utility giant Duke Energy: "the bigger challenge is we have to remake our generation fleet .. By 2050". The Chinese are doing things the US can't do at same pace and scale as the US.  "Working side by side with them we are learning lessons on how 2 build (nukes)" Says nukes must be in mix.  Rogers says Chinese don't like carbon storage, like capture and recycling of carbon into useful products. Rogers: "sharing tech, expertise and intellectual IP of scaling" with Chinese will bring great benefits to both countries. Rogers: "we have a lot in common as Americans with the Chinese because they have a Can-Do attitude."  - Globe2012
