Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter, Neil Young, didn’t hold back when speaking recently at the National Farmers Union event on Capitol Hill about the tar sands operation in Alberta, Canada, and the Keystone XL Pipeline. He had this to say about what he discovered when he visited Fort McMurray, north of Alberta, where “ethical oil” is obtained:

“The fact is, Fort McMurray looks like Hiroshima. Fort McMurray is a wasteland. The Indians up there and the native peoples are dying. There’s fumes everywhere. You can smell it when you get to town. The closest place to Fort McMurray that is doing the tar sands work is 25 or 30 miles out of town and you can taste it when you get to Fort McMurray. People are sick. People are dying of cancer because of this. All the First Nations Peoples up there are threatened by this. Their food supply is wasted. Their treaties are no good. They have the right to live on the land like they always did, but there’s no land left that they can live on, all the animals are dying. This is truly a disaster.”

Young is an outspoken supporter of alternative fuels, such as ethanol. He drives a LincVolt, a Lincoln Continental that runs on ethanol and electricity.
