Oil Sands in Alberta

One of the things about our globalized world is that the realities of economic activities are not close to the places of consumption. It’s clear to me that if we simply had more information about the costs of our actions, more people would be concerned about nature.

This series of photographs from the oil sands of Alberta, Canada is pretty amazing. The scale of the operations is absolutely staggering.
