The project to mine the Athabascan Oil Sands in Canada is the most destructive project on earth, emitting 82% more greenhouse gasses than normal oil processes. (So says my Credo newsletter.) Photo to left is of Syncrude Corporation's tar sands mining in Mildred Lake, Alberta.
Utah has approved a permit to a Canadian company to conduct tar sands mining in areas where black bears, elk, and wild horses find their homes.
Please do call Utah’s Mining division to press them to deny the permit to the tar sands mining company: 801.538.5340.
