Andrew Nikiforuk on the tar sands

Writer and journalist Andrew Nikiforuk presents a very sobering analysis of the development of Alberta’s tar sands and the devastating fallout, with far-reaching political, economic, environmental and social implications for Abertans and Canadians. Most disturbing is the medical doctor who voiced concerns for the health and well being of the residents in Fort Chip. By voicing his concerns and genuinely caring about the health of these residents, he was placed under investigation. The video makes it clear to me for the need to develop, sooner than later, environmentally friendly, alternative energy sources and end our death-destroying, treadmill dependency on oil. Major lifestyle changes are required if humankind is to survive in the future on this planet. View the video here.
