Petropolis - Tar Sands from Above

Check out a trailer / slideshow for a documentary 'Petropolis', which shows the size and scale of the burgeoning Alberta tar sands industry.

We've got plenty more of this coming in the future as we move from crude and condensates to non-conventional oil sources, including tar sands and oil shale.

Looks pretty nice, doesn't it? Surely the future dystopian steampunk movies will be shot on location in abandoned Alberta open pit tar sand mines.

A new proposal: change McCain's 'drill, baby drill!' to 'Mine, baby Mine!'
