An educational read about the multitude of problems accompanying the rapid development of the Alberta oil sands. Left me with lots of questions, as it was a fairly superficial read, but unfortunately I don’t think I can muster the motivation to get through a more in-depth book on the environmental science and economics of this as I barely made it through this one. Did find the sections on the associated social and political problems fascinating, though.
