Oil Sands Fever: The Environmental Implications of Canada's Oil Sands Rush
By: Dan Woynillowicz, Chris Severson-Baker, Marlo Raynolds
Oil Sands Fever: The Environmental Implications of Canada's Oils Sands Rush, written by the Pembina Institute, provides a comprehensive overview of the intense development of the oil sands. The book explores the contradiction between rapidly developing the oil sands and taking action to combat climate change; the implications for Alberta's water resources; the dramatic impact on Canada's boreal forest; the effects of pollution on the region's forests, people and wildlife; the role governments have played in promoting development; and Canada's global responsibility to develop the oil sands in a responsible manner and in the context of a transition to an economy based on sustainable energy.
