I find it remarkable how some people don't know about this great environmental disaster. The area in which the tar sands are getting extracted is about the size of England. However, the mass media barely mentions it (along with any important news regarding climate change) and that just shows you the sheer power of the oil corporations.

   We've all heard of the oil spill in the gulf. Unfortunately, many Montrealers (I'm from Montreal btw) don't seem to be aware that there was an oil spill in the st-lawrence river during the summer (220 tons). There was a major oil spill in Michigan near the Great Lakes (800,000 gallons) and another major oil spill in China that went under the radar (as pretty much every major humanitarian disaster in China).

   As a society, we need to wake up. We need to be aware of what's going on. We need to break free from ignorance and silence. We need to take action for once, we need to spread the word. Together we are more powerful than any corporation. We ought to realize that.


Here is my video on the Tar Sands in Alberta:

Today, I just created my first official website! This website complements my youtube channel of the same name (Cousigreeno). Moreover, this is my very first blog post. I intend to make more YouTube videos in the future and I hope this website will allow my viewers to have a different and pleasant viewing experience.

Personally, I strongly appreciate comments (not mean-spirited ones though) and hope to see them very shortly in my comments page :)


Sincerely, Cousigreeno
