Making the Most of Alberta''s Tar Sands

Alberta’s government and industry have come a long way with the development of a one- time curiosity into a world class oil resource. However, environmental dangers and unregulated urban growth are a cause for concern. Cosmos Voutsinos is an engineer, consultant and entrepreneur with ideas to share on how to make the most of the tar sands.

Mr. Voutsinos will speak about:

• World production and use of energy. • Depletion of oil resources and the coming day of reckoning • Orderly production and use of Alberta’s tar sands oil avoiding adverse environmental and social consequences • A model plan to develop a transition to alternate forms of energy
