Toxic Alberta

There was a very interesting link left on Sheldon's blog - The 14 part documentary (it's not too long though, each part is 2 to 5 minutes long) on Alberta oil sands and the social and environmental impact it is causing in the Fort McMurray region. Although a lot has been mentioned about the environmental fall out and the side effects of the 'dirty oil', it's the first time I've seen something this graphical and detailed.
If you haven't already seen it, do take the time to watch it-just to broaden your perspective and to see the source of the boom and the cost being paid for it.
As others have mentioned here before, in case a not so oil friendly regime wins power in the US, there could be some interesting implications for our province.
