Oil Sands Carbon Emissions

Ottawa spends $155.9M to help oil industry go green

Ottawa will spend $155.9 million to make Alberta’s oil and energy industry more environmentally friendly, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Thursday.

Most of the money will be spent studying ways to capture carbon dioxide emitted from the province’s oilsands and store it underground, instead of releasing the polluting gas into the atmosphere.

And they are going to run out of natural gas anyhow as it uses lots and lots to process the oil sands. Nuclear may be the answer. Years ago they talked about even detonating a nuclear bomb undergroud and then the heat would liquefy the oil sands. I don’t know how radioactive the oil would be though?
