    Oil sands are so nasty.  I've heard the places where they mine it described as "the most polluted spot on the planet"

    •  A bit of Hyperbole (0+ / 0-)

      The Peat bogs are stripped, and cannot be reconstructed, but grasses and such are planted, nevertheless the peat bog ecosystem would be gone, and as a result the Peat releases lots of methane.....

      IMHO we dont need hyperbole, that facts are horrid enough.

      Peat bog ecosystems take 100's if not more than a 1000 years to develop.
