  1. Canada has to face up to how to reverse-engineer the most horrendous ecologically disastrous project on Earth.

    It is likely an impossible task, as so much irreversible damage is already done.

    This is a monstrous tragedy for which the US/Canadian crony cabal of industrialist megacidal half-wits must be held 100% responsible.

    Never mind the Keystone threat, these diabolical maniacs should consider the Yellowstone threat, if that blows Alberta could be buried.

  2. The fact that America has to use oil that is contaminated, and costly to purify, shows America, is now having difficulty in obtaining oil domestically, the boast of America in having so much oil it no longer needs to import oil, a insight of a country heading fast to calamity.
