Video of the day

H2oil animated sequences from Dale Hayward on Vimeo.

What with our eminent Copenhagen related disappointment on the horizon, today we bring you an environment themed animated sequence about America's biggest oil supplier: Alberta, Canada. And you thought it was the Muslims! Edmonton's hockey team isn't called the Oilers for kicks.

More specifically this video is about the Athabasca oil sands and all the glorious side effects of oil that you tend to forget about when you're just thinking about oil and the burning of it. The video is from the documentary H2Oil, which is about oil, water usage, NAFTA, politics, trade, and human costs surrounding what is going to be one of the biggest industrial projects...ever. And you probably never heard of it.
