CTV News Story on Today's Tar Sands Paper

Here's a new story from Canadian TV about the Swart & Weaver paper:

It includes these quotes from Andrew Weaver:
"I was surprised by the results of our analysis.... I thought it was larger than it was."
"The conventional and unconventional oil is not the problem with global warming. The problem is coal and unconventional natural gas."
"This idea that we're going to somehow run out of coal and natural gas and fossil fuels is really misplaced. We'll run out of human ability to live on the planet long before we run out of them.
"I have always said that the tar sands are a symptom of a very big problem. The problem is dependence on fossil fuels."
