Effects of Petroleum Industry Development, and a Look at Nuclear Fusion

We check out the excitement surrounding nuclear fusion – what is it and is it going to be powering our cities any time soon? Then we present a special feature report on the expansion of the petroleum industry in Alberta’s industrial heartland site. Development is booming, but so are environmental and health problems. We compare this site to an infamous industrial site at Sarnia, Ontario, and ask if the problems there are likely to be replicated in Alberta. We start the show with a roundup of the week’s top environmental news stories.
