Another GCC Item: Alberta Tar Sands Expansions

Catching up on my reading: the Canadian government is investigating a new refinery in Alberta in conjunction with a number of oil companies. Diesel will be shipped to the Canadian Pacific coast for export to Asian markets, and gasoline and other products will be shipped to the U.S. As usual, the GCC commenters conveniently forget that tar sands don't have to need natural gas to process. Sheesh.
