“I don’t know if global warming is real or man made or natural. I don’t really care about that.
I’m not even an environmentalist but I do live in northern Alberta where the oilsands are.
These oil companies came in here and have been raping up the land for like 20 years and our shit head government is completely in the pocket of these fucking douchebags.
They make billions while the people that live here wind up getting cancer and we’ve got like mutant fish and endless pipeline leaks.”
“Finally Royal Dutch Shell can start drilling there! What a hell of a long-game they’ve been playing… Smart fuckers.”
