    Yet another gem of government and corporate profiteering at the expense of everyone and everything else, with the false pretext of 'our best interests at hand' being that we are being given 'energy' today. Yet, they are making millions, and are able to prevent the investment into the capital needed to enable renewable energies being the primary source of our energy country or even world wide. Eventually, all natural gas and oil will run out, and we will have to transition to renewable energies anyway, otherwise, like all unsuccessful species who cant evolve, we will perish, but the world will live on without us, and will eventually recover from the damage we have caused her. That means that yes, America will be gone too, and it will be primarily because of our own arrogance.

    I'm from Western Canada. We Western Canadians are very much in favour of mining the Tar Sands. It has brought tremendous wealth to that part of the world.
