This morning at a Vancouver Board of Trade meeting, Kinder Morgan Canada CEO Ian Anderson he made a remarkable public confession: he’s a climate change denier.

“Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson says he’s read the science on both sides and doesn’t know whether humans are contributing to climate change.

Speaking to the Vancouver Board of Trade, Anderson said he “doesn’t pretend to be smart enough” to know which side is right in the climate-change debate.

The federal government is expected to decide whether to approve Kinder Morgan Canada’s proposed $6.8-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion before the end of the year.

Anderson says he does know the broad public view is that over time, humans should reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and he accepts that.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which assesses the work of hundreds of scientists from across the globe, has concluded that human influence on the climate is clear.”
