Actually no one is doing anything here, the forum is dead but for you (and me for the moment). I am not a self identified liberal but it seems to me that if the Canadians want to risk investing in their oil sands in the face of overwhelming evidence that burning same will be going out of style, then I say let them cook their sludge up there.
Regardless of whether you think climate change is real, those that do are going to oppose developing fuels that no only pollute at the point of use, but also during the refinement process. This is not going to change, and makes it a huge economic risk.
In other words, we need to invest in long term job solutions and not throw money at risky and most likely short lived projects.
Before you assume I am a green power advocate, I live in the real world, and have enough technical experience to see the folly of solar and wind power making significant contributions to our fuel supply.
But don't let my humble opinion stand in the way of perfectly workable election year talking points.
I guess my more significant point is that you are wasting your time posting them here anyway.
