The Oil Sands CAN be Canada's Path to Clean Energy

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2009) - Gordon Kelly, engineer and Harvard MBA, presents his views of the oil sands and what Alberta needs to do to become world leaders in responsible oil sand development AND the development of alternative energy sources.

Gordon Kelly's new book The Oil Sands: Canada's Path to Clean Energy? launches at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 12 at the John Dutton Theater, (2nd Floor), WR Castell Central Library, 616 McLeod Trail SE. Admission is free.

New technologies and strong political and corporate leadership can allow Canadians to lead the world in the development of "clean" mobile power sources in the future, from within and beyond the oil sands.
