Right now in Alberta, tar sands bitumen is spilling into the environment at four different sites, one directly underneath a lake. All four spills have been spilling for months and the Alberta and Canadian governments know all about it, they are just powerless to stop them.
To date over 1,528,996.71 litres of tar sands have been spilled onto the landscape near Cold Lake, Alberta and every day another estimated 3,000 litres pour out.
To help you keep track and to remind the Alberta government, and CNRL (Canadian National Resources Ltd – the company responsible for the spills) that their work is far from over we’ve come up with this handy Cold Lake tar sands spill counter: http://spill-widget.openwe.st/
This counter shows, based on the daily spill average, just how much tar sands has been and continues to spill into Alberta’s environment.
