Alberta: The Dirtiest Oil in The World

A NASA researcher's comments on the Keystone Pipeline:

"It's [like] a drug addict reaching for a dirty needle from a fellow addict," NASA climate researcher James Hansen says. "It's crazy, and the president should understand that and exercise leadership and reject the pipeline."

Suncor, Syncrude, Shell, ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil are aggressively lobbying to throw a white blanket over what is known by experts as the dirtiest oil in the world. The new lobbying campaign, flush with money, is now trying to paint Alberta's oil sands as 'ethical oil'. This seems like double-speak taken from Orwell's 1984, not to mention the post-apocalyptic diesel-drenched sand pit that Alberta has become world-famous for.

World leaders all the way from Africa to Europe to S. America, have told Stephen Harper face-to-face that Climate Change can no longer be ignored.
