It's worth it.

With the help of the Koch's, they want to expand it's capability to process bitumin.

What is amazing is that the protesters, or at least those featured in the film, aren't demanding complete closure of the plant[s] - they just want what seems reasonable. Accurate health assessments, better warning procedures, an end of the chemical leaks.

That these things are not provided must be a clear indication that either:

  1. the Corporate culture does not possess any sense of responsibility or truly grasp the interrelationship between corporate integrity and public good will, and they have enlisted the entire political establishment to their way of thinking and acting

  2. the nature and scope of the contamination is of such magnitude that no practical solution is possible.
