Stupid to the Last Drop How Alberta Is Bringing Environmental Armageddon to Canada
Vintage Canada, 2008. Paperback. ISBN: 0676979149. Trade Paperback. Very Good++, tight, bright & unmarked. Light cover edgewear and scuffing. "In its desperate search for oil and gas riches, Alberta is destroying itself. As the world teeters on the edge of catastrophic climate change, Alberta plunges ahead with uncontrolled development of its fossil fuels, levelling its northern Boreal forest to get at the oil sands, and carpet-bombing its southern half with tens of thousands of gas wells. In so doing, it is running out of water, destroying its range land, wiping out its forests and wildlife and spewing huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, adding to global warming at a rate that is unrivalled in Canada or almost anywhere else in the world. It’s digging, drilling and blasting its way to oblivion, becoming the ultimate symbol of Canada’s – and the world’s – pathological will to self-destruct." ; And Doesn't Seem to Care; 7.95 X 5.20 X 0.79 inches; 256 pages.
