Clean up Alberta oilsands: U.S. officials
Obama administration committed to boosting clean-energy production
Two of U.S. President Barack Obama's top advisers on energy and climate change said Monday the Alberta oilsands are a key part of the U.S. energy mix. But they warned its development must be cleaned up, because there's "a lot of concern" south of the border about their environmental footprint.
The US is warning Alberta to clean up it's oil sands? Hello coal fired plants, major US polluters.
Have those US idiots even visited the oilsands? It's too bad the politicians are always behind in what the people want. Being a denier is the new cool! The economy in Canada is starting to show signs of life. Watch the markets, oil goes up, so does the TSX, I think I see a correlation here, do you see the correlation?
Can Alberta only sell to the US? Good question to ask the ecogoons that Obama assigned to this file. Will Alberta take this ecogab sitting down?
Ring, ring.... this is Alberta calling China and India. Hello, you want our oilsands oil? Okay. Done. The environmentalists should love that we are helping third world countries advance. They are exempted from the Kyoto Accord, so sending more oil to them should help stop the coal fired projects and save the planet.
Ring, ring... this is the US calling, what happened to the 20% of oil and gas you have been supplying us? Our gas prices are hitting the roof. Alberta hangs up.
