The Truth About Tar Sands

Hat tip to Don Gordan who sent me this link regarding the Alberta tar sands and the impact of mining them. Please note, this stuff is coming to the BP Refinery in Whiting, In. Cleaner burning natural gas is being used to get the bitumen under the ground. That bitumen would work real well for the Sheridan Rd resurfacing, but instead the effort is being made to turn it into a liquid fuel. Explain to me why that makes sense.

Listen carefully, the Canadians are very worried that we'll make a massive switch to greener alternatives, which impacts the financial bottom line for mining this junk. Make no mistake, it's junk and it's being mined FOR US! Canada is our number one source, by country, for oil.
