You are free to invest as much money as you like in alternatives. Two of the biggest issues are always (1) scale and (2) scale-up. There is lots of good science out there that works in the lab, but not on an industrial scale. We use almost 3/4 of a billion gallons of crude every day. That's a daunting challenge. I'm in favor of further research into the thorium-based nuclear plants.

The authors also do not comment on the lands restored after mining. I remember reporters being flown over reclaimed land, and they were not able to tell when they switched from arboreal land to restored. The mines themselves look like just about any other surface mine. I've flown over the Athabasca mines and coal mines in Germany, and I couldn't tell much difference.

Orinoco is some of the nastiest stuff around. I would prefer it stay underground in Venezuela and not sailing across the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.

You're missing the point. Syncrude sent to Gulf Coast refineries will largely be used to displace Orinoco crude from Venezuela. Additionally, the percentage of surface mined oil sands is dropping and in situ recovery is expanding. Thus eliminating the "hazards" claimed in one of the reports.

...and then compare and contrast the Athabasca syncrude properties with Venezuelan Orinoco crude that the syncrude will displace.

Please fill me in on your background with the Athabasca oil sands. I always wonder how folks gather their info.
