Environmentalist hates Findlay’s idea of turning Canadian tar sands into fuel
A state environmentalist is speaking out against Findlay’s plan to mine tar sands from Canada and convert them into automotive fuel.
Environment Ohio’s Amy Gomberg says she also does not like plans to liquefy coal to make energy at plants in southeast Ohio.
She especially likes the idea of an electric car. She expects Toyota and Honda to release those by 2010.
Findlay and Toledo have proposed mining Canadian tar sands for automotive fuel. Gomberg says it’s a really bad idea.
