Abstract: During early commercial development, water and air were essentially ‘free’, and the cost of their use was not an important part of the economic equation. Few had linked global warming to man-made carbon dioxide emissions – and water seemed to be in plentiful supply. In this current Volume, pathways are described that will reduce the impact of oil sands development on regional air and water resources, and on the land involved in the recovery operation. The focus of research on land reclamation and environmental protection should certainly help to establish a useful level of communication between the industry and those who are vigorously against the oil sands development. Volume 2 clearly identifies the huge impact of the oils sands industry on the economies of Alberta, Canada, and the U.S.
