Dig, Baby, Dig: The Debate over Utah Tar Sands

by Troy Williams

What the heck is Tar/Oil Sands? Some see it as a  sensible fuel option, others an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Nick Burns hosts a debate between Cody Stewart, energy adviser for the Utah Department of Energy and Rob Deluc, staff attorney from Western Resources Advocates. The two spar over the proposed mining of PR Springs by US Oil Sands, which will be the first Tar Sands mining in the United States. We discuss the potential impact on wildlife habitat, drinking water, and the feasibility of post-mining land reclamation.
