    • The big risk comes if the US were ever, as David Frum has pointed out, to make use of the NAFTA emnriovnent side agreement to impose a carbon tariff on Canadian oil. Of course, as we know, Canadian oil has nowhere else to go, in practical terms, unless that charge were very large, and the payment of these tariffs would be both royalty and corporate income tax deductible in Canada/Alberta. The wonder, of course, is that oil is a world market, so Canadian oil would not be able to pass the cost through to the US refiners in any meaningful way. Revenue goes to US, no real change in oil markets, and 60% of that revenue comes from provincial and federal coffers, not oil companies. So yes, they care about employment, and as they sink deeper into their sinkhole, they need to find ways to close their deficit hole without imposing new costs of their firms or their constituents. David Frum, who I would not position as a lefty by any means, sees a real threat in a border carbon adjustment because it would accomplish both of these objectives, and might allow the US to place a tariff on chinese autos at the same time. The US will likely meet 17% below 05 without many changes, since they can do it largely through a coal-to-gas switch given that 30% of their emissions are coal power and many of those plants are older anyway. By committing that that target, in an international agreement, we open the window for sanctions under a NAFTA side agreement. When the solution is an average cost of less than $0.50/bbl, the insurance value is worth it. How much extra is it going to cost to move oil through Keystone XL given all the regulatory hurdles?Andrew
