Tar Sands, Energy Security and the Environment


We all need energy for our daily lives and the only way oil prices will go in the long run is up. Getting that oil is getting more difficult and more expensive. We’ve dug up the easy stuff and now we are exploring more difficult regions (the Arctic) and less refined sources (tar sands). This means more carbon emissions for the energy we use and more threat to the environment from spills.

The long term answer is to move away from oil/gas as our primary fuel sources and use renewable energy which reduces dependency on unstable parts of the world AND is better for the environment.
