Weaponized bitumen?

January 14, 2014

Looks to me as though the Alberta oil patch guys want to ship the bitumen from the tar sands out untreated because they want to send the pollution involved in processing the stuff downstream, as well.

Maybe it’s time for a new meme. How about “weaponized bitumen”? North American business extracts its revenge on China for cheap exports by strangling the country with emissions from its bitumen refineries.

And we thought smallpox blankets and the opium wars were unethical.
