The expanding fire catastrophe occurring in Fort McMurray, Canada.

Greetings:
The visuals of the oil sands and fracking operations in Alberta are as disgusting as they are starkly beautiful. We will share a multitude of screenshots from the videos for those who like the 'short story'…lol.

And in later posts, we will tie in Uranium One, the Clinton's and Russian, Japanese and Chinese influence in Alberta.

We'll start with our friend Jessie's heads-up on the current situation in Alberta as of 17 May 2016. This excellent presentation will give one a visual perspective of what's really at stake here.

Stay un-tuna-ed.

Alberta, Canada: Large Surface Collapse Possible Due to Steam Caverns - YouTube

BPEarthWatch
Published on May 17, 2016
The Beast, Alberta's Large Forest Fire is Forcing Large Underground Thermal Steam Caverns to Shut Down, These Large Steam Chambers will collapse.





Here we have a cutaway diagram of the typical operation of these wells.



And here we have the cross-section depicting activity below the Well Pad, the steam/NCG Injector Well, the Producer Well and the Steam Chamber. What is notably absent in these graphics is the Potable Ground Water Layer that is sure to be contaminated from these 'liberating of bitumen activities.'. See next graphic.



Well, well, (pun intended) what do we have here? That arrow is identifying the Potable Ground Water that exists above these 'bitumen liberating' operations, and if one investigates further, one finds that a significant amount of the potable water in the U.S. comes from these Canadian aquifers.



Fact: Canada has 7% of the world's renewable fresh water.





It is easy for Canadians to assume that they have an almost endless supply of clean, fresh water. After all, we're often told that Canada has some 20% of the world's total freshwater resources. However, less than half of this water -- about 7% of the global supply -- is "renewable". Most of it is fossil water retained in lakes, underground aquifers, and glaciers.


For Canada's 30 million people -- about half a percent of the world's population -- this is still a generous endowment. But, more than half of this water drains northward into the Arctic Ocean and Hudson Bay. As a result, it is unavailable to the 85% of the Canadian population who live along the country's southern border. That means the remaining supply, while still abundant, is heavily used and often overly stressed.


Which leads one to believe that polluting ANY of the available fresh water would be a huge mistake, especially at this level.


The oil sands fracking pads dominate the landscape in Alberta.


Another thought provoking before and after image of reality.


The "splendid beauty of fracking progress," barf.


A great graphic detailing how natural gas drilling contaminates drinking water sources, something that is conveniently overlooked in company brochures.



So, we are to believe that the "gas seepage" and "multi-stage hydraulic fracturing" will have no effect on the Potable Ground Water?


These graphics are self-explanatory, we think.


Thank you for your time and consideration.

With great respect,

I use to operate cranes for a living, and the environmental destruction that I constantly witnessed sent me into such a deep depression that I couldn't do it anymore. The money just wasn't worth it.

I did have my own photo's, but for some reason there missing so I'll add some more from Alberta..

If you're disgusted by the state of Alberta and the 'oil sands' operations, take a look at those who own it - the largest non-Canadian owners are the Kochs. The Rosatom (a Russian company)-Uranium One (a Canadian company) deal is laid out here: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal The Canadian company that became Uranium One were major donors to the Clinton Foundation. Rosatom bought them out. Alluding that any of these players had anything to do with the wildfires is baseless at best.

It's just sad to see this, and then to say we the west are fighting to preserve wildlife and forests in other countries but , destroying our own...

We have clean energy and the technology to extract it , but we seem to lack the power to overcome these disasters against the multi-billion companies that cause these atrocities against nature , plant , animal, and civilians.

Those before and after shots are thought provoking, the immediate thought is how could that not impact the climate....it really is only a matter of time until money paves the way for our own destruction.......

On the other hand, the fire could be natural....

There isn't a single major field/industry that is 'profitable' that isn't a hodge-podge of international investors...

This isn't intended as a debunk, more an overview keeping some balance.

As far as 'environmental damage' goes. Try environmental change. Take a look at that 'change' with pictures of, say, Edmonton or Calgary. Some serious environment damage/change there, as well.


Just saying....

At the same time the Alberta oil sands are said to be drying up rivers in the area. To point out also that carbon dioxide and the green house gas emissions are said to be the greatest in North America. Are they going to pay for the damage done? No, if anything the citizens will be held accountable for carbon taxes.

As well as linked to cancer and overall destroying the environment for Canadian natives.


Elevated levels of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, selenium and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were found in a variety of animals that indigenous groups depend on for food — such as moose, muskrats, ducks, beavers and fish, according to the report. Indigenous populations are especially vulnerable to these impacts because of the close link between their livelihoods and the environment.

"The oil sands fracking pads dominate the landscape in Alberta. "


No they don't. For one, the oil sands are in the north east corner, most of Alberta is covered in farmland and forest.
The fracking pads that dot the land in the rest of Alberta, are not large, and they're in green fields, surrounded by greenery, hay, other crops, etc.

Those pics look bad, but that's a very small part of Alberta. Alberta is a beautiful province, very scenic. Except for where the oil sands are.

If there weren't so many trees up there, there wouldn't have been such a well fueled (by tree underbrush) fire.

Except....you don't frac oilsands operations. (its not frack...at least not to anyone who actually knows a thing about oil and gas systems). And these so-called frac pads? Give your head a shake. To state that the entire province is covered in those is like saying that all of California is covered with oil wells (oh...you forgot that "green" California is actually the worst polluter, with the most dangerous. unmaintained wells out there...).

I understand I have no chance in hell of convincing anyone about anything in this thread, but...I invite you to look for yourself.

First, ask the Natives north of Fort Mac about the pollution in the river that was naturally present before any oil recovery operations began. The entire NE corner of Alberta is a naturally occurring oil spill.

Second, instead of believe the "stats", the well-cropped pictures, and what some guy told a friend who told you, go look at Fort Mac for yourself. Put your money where your mouth is a book a flight over the entire city and surrounding area, particularly to the north. Look at the areas cropped out of the pictures you find on google. You'll see.

People like you who post cropped pictures showing only a tiny area while ignoring the beautiful perfect land just outside the frame really should be held accountable for the lies you spread.

You do realize that there was (is) oil literally seeping through the muskeg in many places around Fort Mac right? Entirely natural. Been happening since before man ever came. And the rivers? Covered in oil slicks before any oil companies every moved in.

I suggest you petition mother nature, or whatever deity you believe in, to pay for the damage done, rather than oil companies that operate in the most restricted, heavily regulated, expensive, and clean operation on earth.


You know, the only reason people like the ones that fill this thread don't go complain about the real polluters - Nigeria, Mexico, Sudan, etc - is because they don't have the balls to. Canada welcomes people coming in to see the real beauty, and a drawback is we also open the doors to keyboard warriors who don't know what they're talking about. If you want to man up and fight evil, go protest in one of those countries. See what happens.

But but but oil is the answer right? All those other forms of energy are a scam put out there by Al Gore right? What a freaking joke.

Engines can run on literally anything. And over 100 years later they still have the world running on the same crap invented back then. It is sickening. Those pictures disturb me. Props to the above poster for leaving that job. Screw working for big oil for dollars.

If you can tell me where that is, I will give you a cookie.

Also, that location is considered not good enough by the company that did it.

There a distinction between oil blocking alternative power sources and blaming oil production for everything that happens. Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant. This likely promulgated by the real polluters....chemicals, plastics and the like..

It’s not hard to tell from what you posted here that you have never been to Alberta and that you have zero understanding of the oil & gas industry in Alberta.

The FOREST fire is not in Fort McMurray (the city), the FORSET fire is in the FOREST surrounding the city, only parts of the city was burning. Funny thing is you say “The oil sands fracking pads dominate the landscape in Alberta” ,then where did all that FOREST come from ? If you really knew anything about oil & gas extraction you would know fracking is used to extract natural gas from shale deposits and not used to extract oil sands.

If you want to learn something come up to Alberta and you will find that in some northern areas you can’t toss a rock without hitting oil sands, it’s been leaking into the water since before people were here.

Your strategically cropped pictures are of tiny areas. Why not post pictures of all the restored areas that the oil companies have completed or would that take away from the doom porn.

Yes and I don't believe anyone is saying that is not true that oil is naturally there.

You realize that Exxon ships and drives in to the tar sands megaload trucks carry bitumen(for processing the oil) and other oil refinery equipment through counties and city roadways and that we have to pay taxes for that? So, now they don't take full regulated responsibility as we have to pay for it. One source

Care to explain, with the source provided in my last reply, as to why Natives have growing rates of cancer?



I suggest you petition mother nature, or whatever deity you believe in, to pay for the damage done, rather than oil companies that operate in the most restricted, heavily regulated, expensive, and clean operation on earth.

Would you share sources about that because it's said otherwise about being restricted, heavily regulated, etc.



You know, the only reason people like the ones that fill this thread don't go complain about the real polluters - Nigeria, Mexico, Sudan, etc - is because they don't have the balls to. Canada welcomes people coming in to see the real beauty, and a drawback is we also open the doors to keyboard warriors who don't know what they're talking about.

You know this because? If people want to share issues on the net they can. Does not mean they don't act otherwise.
FYI I live in a state boarding Canada, so yes I have been to multiple cities in Canada including Alberta and have had some ex family there. Now what?

"See what happens?" May have some people killed. Answered your own question comment about "keyboard warriors". You realize that's why people don't go into militia to cartel controlled areas as in those countries as opposed to research, protesting, petitioning, etc?

Share some more info if you want people to change their views. Albeit most won't want sources from Exxon or other companies(if that's what you work for however). Sources help the debate as well as people as you mention "no chance in hell of convincing anyone about anything in this thread"(in your reply above mine), have more to consider to look into than just opinion.

To speak to your megaloads statement...I think maybe you need to open your eyes up about the shipping industry and megaloads in general. They happen in many, many industries, across all of North America and most other countries. Oil and gas, mining (coal, salt, metals, etc) power generation (clean and "dirty"), factory/production facilities, etc. Let's not forget that these evil megaloads are actually constructed in other states, such as Oregon, creating great trades/skilled labour jobs. Also, the taxes? You should look into how much the permits cost to haul these loads on out-of-state/country highways, plus road bonds, etc.

To speak to your statement about regulation...anyone who tells you Alberta (and Northern BC, and Saskatchewan) are not the most regulated oil and gas production areas in the world is lying. You literally can't spill a teaspoon of chemicals, etc (even water, unless potable) on the ground without an investigation, cleanup, vac truck, soil replacement, etc. Go to the Alberta Energy Regulator website and start reading. That's just one of the regulators monitoring Alberta. Most oil companies have their own equivalent inspection programs, and many drillers or production services companies have a tertiary layer of inspection programs.

I simply find it dishonest or (with respect) ignorant to the facts (perhaps intentionally) when someone says these things about Alberta. If you want sources, start an honest google search. Skip the environmentalist websites and look for legit oil company websites (Suncor, Syncrude are the big two in Fort Mac, Shell, CNRL, Pennwest, ConocoPhilips, are some big examples of conventional O&G producers outside Fort Mac (Oh...You didn't know that the entire province produces oil, mostly via conventional means. and it isn't all in Fort Mac? Most people don't...). Look at oil news sites like oilpro or oilnews. Look at the government sites (the current Alberta government is very anti-oil and far left liberal, and even they defend our oil and gas safety records, despite wanting to tax it into oblivion to support alternatives (that's another issue for another thread lol)).

Simply put, this industry is, by far the most regulated, scrutinized, over-taxed, hated-on industry in North America, and nobody knows anything about it. It just feels good to blame some "scar" of land in Northern Canada that's too remote for most people to visit (if you live near the AB border, drive 10 hours up and see for yourself. I'll personally escort you around if you'd like).

Also...for every Native saying cancer rates are up, there's 10 more saying that they're healthier, the rivers are cleaner, they're grateful for the high paying (6 figures) jobs, etc. Saying "some natives say cancer rates are up" is like saying "some people say Ford makes unsafe cars".

Finally...I don't work in the oil sands, or anywhere near Fort Mac.

You are absolutely right. Somehow, the "some parts" (of Alberta) didn't lake it to the final edit.
Alberta is beautiful and somewhat pristine elsewhere in the province.
