One-time media baron Conrad Black told the audience at a Calgary conference about Alberta’s future that the province’s economic troubles are in part because of a worldwide “holy war” on fossil fuel industries. Black’s keynote at Saturday’s Value of Alberta conference touched on topics from the American political landscape to the virtues of capitalism, but focused mostly on the effect of climate policy in Canada on Alberta’s energy industry. “We do not have the scientific research that demonstrates that the level of alarm that’s been reached is justified,” Black said to applause. “There hasn’t been global warming in the first 20 years of this century and it is a terrible fate but a reversible fate that this province has to bear the burden of this almost incredible seizure.”
