PARIS, France, June 17, 2014 /CNW/ - "As a life-long environmentalist, I can say with some confidence that projects such as Northern Gateway, properly constructed and properly maintained, make sense because they recognize the reality of today's energy requirements."

"Let's remember there are more than one billion automobiles and millions more buses, trucks, trains and aircraft that – for the foreseeable future – will not operate without oil. Economies and civilization in general, from food distribution to healthcare delivery, would come to a virtual standstill without it.

"So, from the perspective of sustainability, where aspects of environment, economy and society work in balance with one another, today's decision by the federal government is the right one."

Dr. Patrick Moore is co-founder and former leader of Greenpeace.
