A Must Read Book, The Future of Oil: A Straight Story of the Canadian Oil Sands
Never before has a book offered an insider’s view of this controversial industry. The Future of Oil objectively considers economic necessity and the nature of current technological limitations to arrive at a series of connected and inescapable conclusions. The transition to an age of cleaner energy production is necessary and inevitable, but we cannot yet live without oil. Oil must have a future, or we do not have one, and the oil sands of Canada are the centrepiece of that future.
The Future of Oil is a clear, concise, yet complete guide to the Canadian oil sands industry. It covers the topics of energy, history, economy, environment, technology, and ethics. The book will be a valuable resource – the ultimate resource – for those who want to know more and learn the facts about the oil sands. It addresses all the main objections to oil sands development that have been posed by journalists, environmentalists, First Nations leaders, and others. The author does not sugarcoat the hard facts, but objectively presents the arguments of oil sands critics and proponents alike. As a result, readers should have a much deeper understanding of all the issues involved, and be able to form their own opinions.
