$260 Billion Estimated Cost to Clean Up The Alberta Tar Sands

A regulatory document from the Alberta, Canada, energy authorities reveals a study estimating a cost of $260 billion to clean up the tar sands. One might wonder what the total revenue to the oil companies has been since the tar sands have been actively in production.

A flawed system of industrial oversight seems responsible, many warned of problems over the past number of years.

Extensive tailing ponds, and inactive oil and gas exploration wells, are all siting, waiting to be cleaned up, occupying a huge area in northern Alberta.
