Tar sand mining is actually coming to Utah?

Awful and unlikely “energy source”  might soon break ground in Eastern Utah-

Because of its tremendous environmental impacts and poor quality energy (little to no net energy is produced), I haven’t considered oil shale/tar sands mining much of an environmental threat in the desert of Utah. I suppose most others have felt the way.  As RL Miller says in his article below, a tar sands project has been “flying under the radar.”  Without more of a public uproar it will soon break ground near the national parks of Eastern Utah.

What an outrage!  This kind of thing needs to be killed dead and a stake driven through its heart. The tar sand mining in Alberta has been called the single most destructive energy project on the planet.
