It's not about Dirty Oil or Ethical Oil. It's about the Future of Oil

Unless we are able to increase the global oil supply, we face a bleak future of depleting reserves and ever-rising energy prices. Since conventional oil reserves are dwindling, we have no alternative but to increasingly rely on unconventional oil, and for political, economic, and environmental reasons, the Canadian oil sands of-fer the very best unconventional oil we can get.

Never before has a book offered an insider's view of this controversial industry. The Future of Oil objectively considers economic necessity and the nature of current technological limitations to arrive at a series of connec-ted and inescapable conclusions. The transition to an age of cleaner energy production is necessary and in-evitable, but we cannot yet live without oil. Oil must have a future, or we do not have one, and the oil sands of Canada are the centrepiece of that future.

The Future of Oil is a clear, concise, yet complete guide to the Canadian oil sands industry. It does not sugar-coat the hard facts and cuts through the "Dirty Oil" and "Ethical Oil" debate by objectively presenting the argu-ments of oil sands critics and proponents alike. Most of all, The Future of Oil offers, for the first time, an invalu-able insider's view of a crucial energy debate that will be with us for some time to come.
