True Cost of Alberta Tar Sands oil

Here is a must see video that presents the true cost of Alberta Tar Sands oil.

What does environmental devastation actually look like? At TEDxVictoria, photographer Garth Lenz shares shocking photos of the Alberta Tar Sands mining project — and the beautiful (and vital) ecosystems under threat.
This powerful talk helps us understand that the tar sands are not just another source of oil. That this oil comes to us at a cost of industrializing an area the size of the state of Florida - one of the most beautiful and important forests and wetlands in the world.
