I consider myself an environmentalist but I have absolutely no affiliation with any enviro group whatsoever ...I but I believe that with the astronomical advances that are taking place with nanotechnology we will easily be able to produce all our current energy demand with solar within 20 years...

So regarding the tar sands I really think that we should be careful and bring a careful eye to what is going on there. The scale is absolutely MASSIVE and it really threatens a huge amount of water which is very precious in the Alberta province...

Similar to the bird pics...sometimes having a focus brought to an issue can have some benefits...not saying I have any answers but as most of us live in democratic countries it helps to know what is going on...

You can't believe everything you read but I sure a heck appreciate having ALL sides if the argument available to me.

I wouldn't want to miss any of the views...although many are sponsored.
