Lot's of talk about Canadian oil in the Star Tribune lately. First, Neal St. Anthony's well intended/misinformed column. Then a news piece about a recent report from the Natural Resources Defense Council. There there was this response from some guy at the American Petroleum Institute--the same lobbying group that have generously provided high school science teachers around the country with such fine educational videos as "Fuel-less: You Can't Be Cool Without Fuel." Who know's if they'll publish my venting--but hey, that's what blogs are for right?
The only one misconstruing the facts is the professional oil lobbyist, Peter Lidiak, whose Feb. 24 response intentionally avoided the premise of the article (“Pipeline safety questioned, Feb. 17) in order to deceive the public.
