Following the Oilsands Reclamation Research News Conference at the University of Alberta, Sierra Club Prairie offers the below comment from Executive Director Chelsea Flook:
" This report provides strong independent scientific evidence that we need a moratorium on new oilsands leases in order to do some real accounting on trading carbon sinks for carbon time bombs.
