    The future should include fully utilizing coal and gas, not harming families by jumping up gas prices and not fully utilizing coal and gas resources.

    But heck, harming their health is no big deal, eh? If you don't believe the averse effects that these industrial practices have on our health, then you are either naive or uninformed.

    Except that it won't be for US consumption. It'll be refined and put on a tanker to China.

    If the price of oil sinks to a certain point, the pipeline and the oil sands will suddenly dry up until it becomes profitable again.

    The Alberta Tar Sands--that are now golden in many an eye--were considered complete garbage in the 70's and 80's. By OUR OWN government, none-the-less.

    Is ANWR included in that 60% capacity?

    They were useless back then but when prices rose and new technology became available they proved to be a very valuable resource.

    In fact technology has advanced to the point where there isn't near the risks there once was. All you need do is ask the coal miners and their unions.

    I have a bridge to sell you. Interested?

    Sorry. I'm not one to fall hook line and sinker with I see a puke-inducing 'feel good' Suncor commercial. All I have to do is visit a polluted city and I will develop an instantaneous sinus infection. Been that way all of my life, and I am almost certain it's what will kill me in the end.

    You know, I could say a lot of things here, but I will leave you with this. A few years back I watched a documentary on how some people in West Virginia were upset because environmentalists were forcing their mountain top coal mining jobs out of business. The enviromentalists were called every name under the sun, and told to mind their freaking business by many, including the featured man and wife who lived in a most pristine setting. No doubt, times were tough for the couple money-wise. The reporter then asked how they would feel if the mountains that surrounded their beautiful home were chosen to be blasted. Without missing a beat, the husband blurted, "I'd do everything to stop it." (I paraphrase to the best of my memory, but the same gist). So basically, it's all okay, as long as it does not happen in my neighbourhood.
