If the $30 Billion We Give Oil Sands Went to Green Energy

With gas prices and consumption predicted to balloon in coming years, what will be the collective cost to the taxpayer in the next decade for turning gas into bitumen? And what else could we do with this money?

Thanks for the post Julie. It's nice to see an article that doesn't forget about geothermal energy, as the focus on renewable energy sources is usually on wind and solar.

We really have to move away from dirty energy.

This is committing planetary (incl. human) collective suicide, which most faiths condemn... so if we want to be better Christians, better Muslims etc (not just pray in the mosque/ church, being a part-time believer), we should STAND UP and stop it! Indeed, diverting such subsidies to green energy sounds like an excellent first step (if ultimately we should live within our/ God's means). My 2p. In peace, Rianne

What about all the money we flushed down the toilet for the war(s) in the Middle East? Imagine the technology we'd have if we'd put that into alternative energy research instead of enriching a few oil men and mercenaries!
