A video produced by the Frontier Centre for Public Policy's Smart Green Project (www.fcpp.org)

ERRATUM: It has been pointed out that this video implies the Wolfe Island Wind Farm was operational in 2008, it was not, the figures in the video are from 2009. Frontier regrets the error.

ERRATUM 2: A viewer writes that the calculations should have deducted some energy from the oil sands production to account for energy used to produce oil, and should have accounted for energy from all Canadian Oil sands rather than just those controlled by Syncrude. If you accept these claims, and they are debatable (the bird deaths happened on Syncrude's tailing ponds), the overall message of the video is unchanged except that the greater energy output figure from including more oil sands overwhelms the reduction in energy caused by allowing for recovery, altogether making the oil sands look better still.
