Tar Sands

Andrew Nikiforuk explains how the tar sands will affect us all. The US now imports the majority of its oil from Canada. What I find wasteful about the tar sands energy project is that in some locations, natural gas is used to harvest the bituminous sands deep underground. So, we're burning natural gas to get oil. What a waste!

  1. They use gas to extract oil from the sand. They use coal to create electricity in Ontario. It takes energy to create energy.

    Canada has more gas and coal than we know what to do with anyway.
