Tar Sands: Not Just for Dinosaurs & Prehistoric Mammals


Petropolis website

Hugh tells us all about the Alberta tar sands, which some say are the second biggest oil reserve in the world after the Saudi oil fields.  We started on the crenellated* fjords of the British Columbia coast, followed the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline through the coastal mountains and ended up in the tar sands.  But not to fear, we didn’t get bogged down (ha HA) in gloom – Hugh told us how local citizens, advocacy groups, and yes, even the US government are all helping to block Enbridge’s progress.

Listen for some eclectic grooves, environmental news, and your weekly vocabulary lesson.

*Crenellated (adj) 1. having battlements, 2. indented; notched
