    His blog. Robert writes for the oildrum.com.

    I would consider Robert Rapier to be a very good source.

    BTW rounding off those numbers - you get 3 to 1.

    Conventional wisdom has put tar sands EROEI as best case=5 to 1. Worst case 1.5 to 1.

    Robert Rapiers 3 to 1 EROEI probably does not include filling the holes made from open pit mining, let alone making an attempt to restore the habitat, so we're starting at 3 to 1, and soon descending to something much lower.
