POINT: The global climate deal signed in Paris in 2015 says the world has to stop using petroleum.

For energy-exporting nations like Canada, understanding a text has never been more important. 


Untrue. In fact, there is no mention of oil, gas or coal in the agreement signed by 196 nations. The crucial section of the agreement is Article 2, which makes clear that the real focus is on managing poverty, adapting to change, and addressing the root of the problem. Success toward a low-carbon economy means respect and collaboration.
