Why what's happening in Calgary, Canada should matter to everyone

Calgary is located in Western Canada near the majestic Rocky Mountains. It has just over 1.5M people and is the center of Canada's energy industry. Today, it is living the effects of climate politics like possibly no other city on the planet. Canada is implementing aggressive environmental policies that are shutting down much of its traditonal energy industry. Billions of dollars of investment have left and thousands of jobs have been vacated due to stalled industry. The city is at a crossroads with much of its future dependent on forces outside of its own control. While the effects of climate politics on Calgary are obvious, the story is much bigger. It will have dramatic impact on all Canadians and should be a cautionary tale for people all around the world.
