Jul 7: Canadian pipe dream or American nightmare?
Jul 6th, 2012 by Sam

Show this week:

It’s hot, hot, hot, and the air conditioners are blasting…  until the power goes out.

So where and how should we get our power?  There isn’t enough wind and solar to power the country yet.  So what are the alternatives…  Fracked natural gas from Pennsylvania? Deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico?  Sweet crude from Saudi Arabia?Coal from West Virginia?  Crude from Nigeria? Angola? Guinea?

How about heavy crude from the tar sands of our best friend and neighbor Canada?

What do Canadians think about the tar sands vs other energy sources?  Does it matter that they are hiring US vets?  Do Canadians have a problem with pipelines?  Who are they going to sell it to?

We’ll discuss tar sands vs fracking and other energy sources with a real live Canadian news guy – John Brenner, Assistant News Editor on AM 580 CFRA Ottawa.

What do you think we should do?  And, are you willing to turn off your air conditioner until we solve the problem?

Call in and let us know at 617 237 1234!
