EcoEmails

This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at muffinkimber@gmail.com

H2Oil June 10, 2010

Aha another film about the Canadian Tar sands… H2Oil but this time talking about the water issues.

Crude oil produced from the oil sands is the dirtiest oil in the world. It uses a lot of energy and a lot of water and leave a very large environmental footprint compared to all other forms of oil extraction. The process of oil sands extraction uses up to 4 barrels of fresh water to produce one barrel of crude oil.

H2Oil follows a voyage of discovery, heartbreak and politicization in the stories of those attempting to defend water in Alberta against tar sands expansion. Unlikely alliances are built and lives are changed as they come up against the largest industrial project in human history.
