Yes But it brings revenue for America. That's the important part. Soros and Adelman energies doesn't bring any revenue at all.

I live a few hours drive from the "tar" sands. The cesspool of waste and destruction isn't just confined to the tailing ponds. The allure of greasy money has pacified the political landscape of this province for more than 30 yrs. The conservative government has been in power and in the sack with the oil magnates for that long. Now the federal government is also hooked on the cash crack in transfer payments from this province to their coffers in oil revenues. Environmental concerns are just cheap bull# talk for the masses. They're tearing this place to hell. Their reclamation efforts are as about as effective as the reforestation of clear cuts in BC ( British Columbia ). Practically nonexistent when the ratio of what gets dug up per day to land reclaimed is compared. The health affects on populations of native and non native peoples is suppressed information. Most leaks and line failures go unreported publicly. Our environmental policy is a joke. Just lip service to the masses as most people do not go to see for themselves. This is what concerns me the most about corporate and government culpability regarding the oil industry. There really is none. Only corporate oil pimps and the political whores who service them.
