Noted. I had an opportunity to sneak into a huge project up in oil sands last fall and it was an eyeopener. It is a devastated landscape with seemingly no oversight (except security to keep people like me out). We are going to try to get me back in next month so I can get pictures.

This is a quite ofter overlooked result of mining tar sands and from all accounts and purposes is a terrible nuisance.Why do these companies find it acceptable to to destroy entire communities and the land along with it for sheer profit.
