    The real issue is the amount of fossil fuels we humans burn, much less is the issue of where it comes from or even that some oil is dirtier than other. Reducing the amount we consume is what should be worked on. As for it looking bad, Australia had a forested mountain range rivaling The Rockies and it was warn down and is parched now. The tar sands area will be left alone eventually and overtaken by nature in 50 or 100 years and in 200 years it will look pretty much as it did. Eventually it will be hard to determine it was ever "mined". If you take issue with this, then I have to say, I don't like the way you Americans have drained the Colorado river to the point it does not reach the Pacific Ocean. You have destroyed the environment, and as a non-American I demand you take out the dams and give up the electricity and irrigation (food). Do that or please butt out of Canada's bussiness. Okay, go ahead and stick your nose in it, I know you think you know everything. Bla bla bla. It's consumption, stupid.
