Fossil Fuels
We cannot afford to keep our societies running on fossil fuels. When oil production peaked we didn't see the expected fast transition to alternative energy, but rather a push from the fossil fuel industry to harvest oil and gas with even more devastating and dangerous techniques - deep see drilling, tar sands, fracking. The only reason why those practices take place is because the price of destruction and pollution that they leave behind is paid by the eco-system, the local populations and future generations.

The true cost of oil: Shocking photographs reveal the unmatched devastation caused by Alberta's Tar Sands Featured


What does environmental devastation actually look like? At TEDxVictoria, photographer Garth Lenz shares shocking photos of the Alberta Tar Sands mining project -- and the beautiful (and vital) ecosystems under threat.

    you should immediately look out for another data recovery company or professional.

    Vegetarians want the identical quantity of protein as omnivores - 5.5 ounces a
    day, primarily based on a 2,000-calorie weight-reduction plan -
    but it surely would not have to come back from animal sources.

    This absolutely sickens and TERRIFIES me! We are on the track to self destruct but it will be our children and grandchildren that will suffer the most. So many shut it out, go on about our usual daily routine of self gratification and indulgence and turn a blind eye! Unforgivable! The earth will survive, but those who live for self, deserve their fate!!!

    No amount of money can save a world dying. The greedy corupt goverments only know the word more... More wealth, More power. I wonder when the last of clean air is gone....The last tree has died... The last clean water is fouled... What will the rich and powerful eat, drink and breathe??????..... I wonder if they have thought that far ahead? Know the truth. Goverments do not care about anything other than wealth and power. Get it right people. You have one life and one world. When it dies.... You die also.

    I've never bin so aware of our environment and how its being effected. I'm scared. I cried and held my son worried about his future. I realized its time for me to get involved because I care about my children's future. N I'm going to pass this on n get as many people and do what I can to help. This effects all of us. We can't just sit back and ignore it because its not just a TV show or a story. Its reality of what's going to happen to all of us. Our children shouldn't have to suffer for the greed of others.these people have the money to destroy what ever land they want and take there families to a clean island and live their lives after everybody else is getting sick. Are we going to wait until that happens before we come together n prevent what ever damage we can while were still here. Or wait until our families are suffering and there's nothing we can do? I say we have to start today and build our connections with each other and fight for our future our children!

    I'm with Grandma Sharon. I'd buy one of those Tshirts in a heartbeat if it didn't say "less assholes"!!
    The presentation didn't tell me much I didn't know, but it was graphic and added some figures and stats. But will anyone listen? The present government of Canada clearly has absolutely no interest in the environment - just in money. Frankly, I'm very glad I'm at the final act of my own life and I won't be around to see the Final Act of the world. I want to cry when I think of my grandchildren and beyond.

    Ed, why should I wake up. I already know the fact that we are all sold out by foreign corps and I agree there is no clean petro oil on this earth. The tar sands in on your land, in your country. There is not too much we can do about that except try to stop the pipeline on our end.

    Wake up JoAnn P....."We" Canadians are being sold out to any foreign ( yes that includes Damn Yankees ) corp/country that will "invest" vast sums of money to "develop" ( lay waste to the earth) the "dirty oil"...by the way ...there is no "clean Petrol oil" on earth....get used to "foreigners" getting "your" natural resources for garage sale prices ...that's the "USAmerican Way" free enterprise" means free abuse....all part of your "genius leader" GWB's New World Order....good luck stopping the Keystone.....the only way there will be any hope for you "USAmericans" is for you collectively to exercise your Constitutional Right to overthrow your corrupt govt.....It will take blood...just look at Venezuela and the Ukraine....those people don't have the easy acess to arms that you do in the USA...stop whining and fight ! We don't have that right in Canada !

    There is a large group here in the US of A and growing bigger everyday that do not want this pipeline and would like to see the tar sands closed down. It is Transcanada who is coming in and doing eminent domain on our people. Somehow they have bought off enough of our government that they are able to get the land they want, from these people, condemn. They almost got their wish but a group challenged them and the Nebraskan part is at a standstill. Many of us do not want this pipeline. We do not support what they have done to the Boreal Forests and the First Nations People. We here in America will not benefit in any way from this. Transcanada is using us and our national resources as a dirty highway for the dirtiest oil on this planet.We must all stand together and defeat this.
