Flaw in Anti-Oil Sands Plan: Americans Aren't Idiots

Mexico, Japan, Sweden, Norway, China, Serbia, Brazil, Uruguay, Peru, Denmark, France, Philippines, Spain, Austria, South Africa, Ukraine, Isreal, South Korea, Chile, …..(Writers note: I thought I’d make a theoretical list of potential customers for Alberta’s oil sands. While I have every confidence that my American friends are not gullible enough to believe the latest enviroNazi-created anti-Alberta oil sands campaign, from time to time even the best and brightest of Canada’s neighboring nation have been known to get sucked into choosing sizzle over steak and falling for spin (Obama). Surely, Americans can see through a transparent cover story of such a group, namely their claim that shutting down the oil sands [which contribute less than one tenth of one percent of total global greenhouse emissions] is their goal when their true intent is actually the complete end of all global use of fossil fuels in true one-world-government fashion, right?)…….Russia, North Korea, Australia, England, New Zealand, Germany, Fiji, Paraguay, Afghanistan, Georgia, Scotland, Portugal, Italy, Cuba, …..

Reasonable people often make the error of thinking facts matter. This case shows that reality, or objective facts do not matter to many, maybe most people. This is why our American friends may indeed be gullible enough to not want to buy oil on the international market.

Which is where Alberta should be selling it's oil. Those countries listed should be able to buy our oil and to that end we need pipelines to Manitoba and BC so we can ship our product via ocean tankers.

This would increase the environmental damage caused by our oil, making it as damaging as the oil these anti-oil sands group say are better. But objective facts are not important to such groups, nor the ignorant masses.

If objective facts were a concern these same groups would have spoken out against the fines levied against Syncrude for killing birds. Or maybe they would have demanded that the Wind Generation companies face even greater fines for the much larger number of birds they kill every year.

Of course such objective facts seem to have no role to play in the anti-oil sands, anti-Alberta anti-Canadian attacks that seem to be increasing of late.
