Stelmach: In defense of oilsands

Alberta premier Ed Stelmach, writing in the Politico:

Alberta is — and continues to be — a reliable and responsible energy producer. We stand virtually alone in North America with respect to the regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from large industrial facilities.

Only here can you find mandatory greenhouse gas reporting requirements, legislation requiring mandatory greenhouse gas reductions and a price on carbon emissions. We reinvest the carbon revenue into clean energy research and technology development, which, one day, can be used all over the world -- including the United States.

Here's why he's busy defending the oilsands.
