Watershed - Summer Series

This is a really good series on water and what it means to us. There is a really good episode on the Alberta Tar Sands:

Episode # 6 : Alberta Tar Sands & Tailing Ponds

Author Andrew Nikiforuk says the way we're developing the Alberta Tar Sands is turning Canada into a one-dimensional "petro-state" with no regard for the social, economic or environmental consequences. His book is called Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of the Continent.

Also … Tailing Ponds. The Alberta Oil Sands industry generates an extraordinary amount of wealth and a staggering amount of waste ... toxic waste that no one is quite sure what to do with. We consider the consequences and go looking for a solution.

I've given up on everything and anything related to the environment, and am pleased to say that I'm saving for a brand new Dodge Challenger GT 2010, 4,152 pounds of muscle, 22 miles per gallon, and with a 0-60-mph time of 4.8 secs, I'll be well ahead of any ecological disaster! YeeHa!

(I'm also shopping for some rifles and shotguns, if anyone knows of good prices, let me know!)
