The Canadian Tar Sands is the world's largest, and dirtiest, energy project. Dirty oil sands crude generates as much as five times greenhouse gas as conventional oil. Yet, unless steps are taken by the U.S. and Canada, both countries will become irrevocably addicted to the dirtiest oil on earth. Totally lame.
McCain's freaky-mean '92 outburst is a well-sourced story found in Cliff Schecter's book "The Real McCain."
Due to the particularly profane nature of McCain's misogynistic comment it would probably be useless to wait for the press to give it the full-on, endlessly repeating, 24-7 Reverend Wright treatment. So we'd love to help.
