“People who think that peak oil will occur are just looking at conventional oil. You have to think beyond that. Think of all the other hydrocarbon resources, the oil sands in Cananda… Think of all the remote areas of the world that have not yet been explored….”
David O’Reilly, Chevron CEO, 2006
The United States imports more oil from Canada than from any other country. 3/4s of Canada’s oil exports go to the United States. And while Canada’s domestic demand for oil has stabalized, its exports to the United States continue to climb. Thus, while Canadians get the land, air and water pollution of tar sands production, the United States gets most of the oil.
