FREDERICTON – A possible implementation of a tax on carbon is one of many options the premier of New Brunswick is considering when it comes to fighting climate change.

The new Liberal government in Ottawa is clarifying its stance on the federal review of the Energy East pipeline, saying it will come up with a "transition strategy" while it rewrites national rules.

A federal judge ordered Anadarko Petroleum Corp to pay a $159.5 million civil fine reflecting its stake in the Gulf of Mexico well whose 2010 blowout caused the largest U.S. offshore oil spill.

As Premier Brian Gallant prepares to head to Paris for the UN climate talks, he says the conference could help New Brunswick and Canada make the case for energy projects, such as the Energy East pipeline, by bolstering the country's credibility on climate change.

A report by the Royal Society of Canada says there are major research gaps when it comes to understanding the environmental impacts of oil spills in water.

The Energy East project to transport crude oil across the country in unused natural gas pipelines is the safest method of transportation available, according to a TransCanada Corp. spokesman.
