Salvation for Tar Sands?

Tar sands get a lot of bad press, much of it to do with the fact that the extraction and processing of tar sands bitumen creates a lot more pollution than other fuel sources. A few companies are working on a technology that could change this, though. If all goes to plan, the greenhouse gas emissions from tar sands development could be significantly reduced, diminishing one element of environmental harm that has fanned opposition to this fuel source. Watch the video below to learn more about this technology and what its implications could be. 

Not all fuel sources come with such a heavy carbon footprint. Forward-thinking energy players like GE and Ford have already plowed sizable amounts of research capital into this little-known stock... because they know it holds the key to the explosive profit power of the coming "no choice fuel revolution." Luckily, there's still time for you to get on board if you act quickly. All the details are inside an exclusive report from The Motley Fool. Click here for the full story!

    While do left wing journalists ALL use the incorrect term 'TAR sand' it is "OIL SAND". Tar sand is a completelt different product.

    But then when trying to form public opinion, derogatory terms get more press.

    Dear readers/viewers, I do hope you'll forgive my flub. I seem to have said "Transcontinental" when I meant "Transcanada." I didn't even realize I'd done that. Video can be an unforgiving medium. Apologies for any confusion.
