Tar Sands

Interesting article from Discovery about Canada’s tar sands and the controversy surrounding them. While I’ll admit that tar sands aren’t the cleanest form of energy in the world, what people who oppose this project conveniently forget is that if the United States does not build a pipeline to capture this important source of oil, the Chinese WILL! China has already proposed building a multi-billion-dollar pipeline across the Canadian Rockies to get oil to Canadian Pacific ports, where it could be shipped overseas. So you see, whether or not people agree with whether this oil should be harvested is moot. It WILL BE! And it will either help the U.S. economy…or China’s. Wonder what protesters think about that?
