If this project moves forward, it will point to one thing - the GOP, who have been oh, so worried about future generations, are ignoring facts about the negative effects of this bitmen for future generations. I was amazed when Exxon said that because the guck spilled in AR wasn't "by definition" oil that they can avoid penalties over the size of the spill. Meanwhile, one of the most actively bought commodities around the globe is WATER. I'm sure that some RW will not be able to connect these totally unrelated commodities: snark!
In Response to Re: Oil Sands......... Are They Really Worth It?:
Let's not forget our new first-hand experience with broken pipes carrying tar sands - the folks from Arkansas are now seeing that this stuff is a DISASTER when introduced into the environment, or in this case, their neighborhoods.
The most profitable company in the history of the planet is either hoping to elect more Repugs so they'll have to pay nothing for the spill OR they have spent not a dime on equipment and procedures to clean up their messes - Exxon is STILL only suing PAPER TOWELS to sop up the tarsand glop from the wetlands where they pumped it to make it harder to photograph than it was when it was in people's front yards.
Germany decided to "go green" and they're doing it. Now Germany has a distinct advantage - they had come under the control of the first Reichwingers, and they have vowed to never do that again, hence they have nothing like Republicans in their Government and as a result, they can get things done that benefit the people and not the corporations. We should observe this and go and do likewise.
