This Week’s Post is …

18 Aug

Someone else’s (hard) work and a comment.

This recent Esquire magazine special report offers an interesting and wide-reaching look at something that a lot of us don’t really even want to think about: the Alberta tar sands projects and the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that will cover thousands of miles in two different countries — just asking to spring a leak somewhere.

My comment: If our advanced economies can do things like send and land a  $2.5 billion high-tech contraption to another planet more than 563 million kilometres away, why can’t we entirely retool our transportation methods to function without fossil fuels?

Just curious.
