U.S. ambassador to Canada: Reduce oilsands’ environmental impact
Alberta will continue to feed America’s energy needs but must work to clean up resource extraction operations, David Jacobson, the U.S. Ambassador to Canada, said Tuesday…..
However, additional improvements in the environmental performance of oilsands extraction operations are “necessary,” he said.
“We’re aware of the progress that has been made to address some of the environmental impacts in the Alberta oilsands. . . . But as I’ve said on many occasions in the past, additional improvements are necessary.”
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers took a more positive spin on Jacobson’s speech in this tweet.
