Mining of the tar sands will not be stopped.[/center]

You are entitled to your opinion and to be as wrong as you wish of course, but I disagree with your rather depressing opinion.


I think that soon the polluters will have to stick the product of tars sands mining where the sun doesn't shine.


Times are changin', K-Dog. The polluters will increasingly find themselves out gunned, despite their past successful efforts to corrupt every government that has fossil fuel resources.

It will stop due to energy economics.  When the net energy return is negative, it stops itself.  This will take a little while though.

RE
the view from here is we want the revenue and the righteousness of being clean energy crusaders. I see zero enthusiasm for the financial pain it would cause here. I don't know if there will be future tar sands money but there is no way in hell Alberta will shut down mature developments. At 60 something a barrel everyone is anti tar sands at 110 a barrel... that is a hell of an incentive. You buy a lot of senior care daycare housing projects with that money. There is an established route to the Gulf refineries and infrastructure designed to take it. The trick will be making sure no new money goes in...

So, it's all about money, is it?  I'll agree with you on just one thing: $110 a barrel is a HELL of an incentive. I'm sure your daughters will NOT thank you profusely in a decade or so for supporting polluting tar sands at the "right" price. I think anyone that does figure that tar sands polluting is "okay" at the "right" price will soon be very sorry they did. But for now, I'm sure the lawyers from Kinder Morgan agree 100% with your "math".  Good luck with that.
