Washington D.C. Premiere
Natural Resources Defense Council presents
TOXIC ALBERTA (Canada, 2007, 49 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere As we hit peak oil and global oil reserves go into decline, Canada is poised to become a major player in the geopolitical energy marketplace due to improved oil extraction technology. What does this sudden access to previously unobtainable oil mean and what are the environmental costs? How we get our energy and the impact of that process on the environment is one of the most pressing issues of our times. The potential damage to the Canadian Boreal, one of the last undisturbed forest ecosystems in the world, to make way for the new technology, is inestimable. Directed by Meredith Danluck. Produced by VBS.TV.
Introduced by Alyssa Go, Program Assistant, International and Nuclear Programs, NRDC. Discussion with Host and Executive Producer, Eddy Moretti, and experts from the region and NRDC follows screening.
