Awesome Video, in particular the typical humor used to address the core issue of environmental destruction! Just to add to the description provided: Athabasca oil sands opened up to commercialization because the price of oil rose above the cost of oil recovery from the sands. Without that economic 'assistance', the sands wouldn't be as lucrative as they are today. The effort to recover oil is also ernormous – Google around, you'll see.
