The Tar Sands Disaster @barackobama must do what’s best for America no #keystone #tarsands #idlenomore

The Tar Sands Disaster @barackobama must do what’s best for America no #keystone #tarsands #idlenomore | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

President Obama will be doing Canada a favor if he blocks the Keystone XL pipeline once and for all.

 

The most obvious reason is that tar sands production is one of the world’s most environmentally damaging activities. It wrecks vast areas of boreal forest through surface mining and subsurface production. It sucks up huge quantities of water from local rivers, turns it into toxic waste and dumps the contaminated water into tailing ponds that now cover nearly 70 square miles.

 

Also, bitumen is junk energy. A joule, or unit of energy, invested in extracting and processing bitumen returns only four to six joules in the form of crude oil. In contrast, conventional oil production in North America returns about 15 joules. Because almost all of the input energy in tar sands production comes from fossil fuels, the process generates significantly more carbon dioxide than conventional oil production.

 
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:
The Tar Sands Disaster ... "Mr. Obama must do what’s best for America. But stopping Keystone XL would be a major step toward stopping large-scale environmental destruction, the distortion of Canada’s economy and the erosion of its democracy."

H2OIL : Fort Chipewyan are already paying the price - cancer leading to genocide #tarsands

H2OIL : Fort Chipewyan are already paying the price - cancer leading to genocide #tarsands | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it

In the vast, pristine forests of Western Canada, the ‘war for water’ has already begun…

Thanks to Alberta’s Athabasca oil sands, Canada is now the biggest oil supplier to the United States. A controversial billion-dollar industry is heavily invested in extracting crude from the tarry sands through a process so toxic it has become an international cause for concern. Four barrels of glacier-fed spring water are used to process each barrel of oil, then are dumped, laden with carcinogens, into leaky tailings ponds so huge they can be seen from space. Downstream, the people of Fort Chipewyan are already paying the price for what will be one of the largest industrial projects in history. When a local doctor raises the alarm about clusters of rare cancers, evidence mounts for industry and government cover-ups. In a time when wars are fought over oil and a crisis looms over access to clean fresh water, which resource is more precious? And what price are we willing to pay? — Gisèle Gordon.

Minnesota taconite health report due in April | 82 Iron Rangers have died mesothelioma Duluth, Minnesota

Minnesota taconite health report due in April | 82 Iron Rangers have died mesothelioma Duluth, Minnesota | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Peer-reviewed results from the University of Minnesota study into why many Iron Rangers are dying of a rare lung disease will be made public in April.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

FACTS ABOUT TACONITE MINES.

Researchers in the nearly $5 million Minnesota Taconite Workers Health Study said Tuesday they will hold a public meeting at 3 p.m. April 12 at the Mountain Iron Community Center to explain the conclusions reached in the effort that started in 2008.

 

At least 82 Iron Rangers have died in recent years from mesothelioma, which often doesn’t appear until 30 to 40 years after initial exposure to asbestos fibers. The lung disease is always fatal and its only cause is exposure to asbestos or similar fibers.

 

It’s estimated that about 80,000 workers have been involved in iron ore mining since the first operations began in Minnesota in the late 1800s. Researchers are focusing on the roughly 46,000 people born since 1920 who worked in the production of taconite, which hasbeen mined and processed from iron ore in Minnesota since the 1950s.

 

Last June, in the most recent update on the study, researchers revealed that the study confirmed a 300 percent higher rate of mesothelioma on the Iron Range than among the general population in Minnesota. That report also noted that Iron Rangers have about 20 percent more lung cancer and 11 percent more heart disease than the general population.
