b. What safety precautions should you take if your house has a furnace? If my house had a furnace, I would make sure that the airways are clear and unobstructed to let oxygen in and out as well as install carbon monoxide detectors placed and tested near it. 10. Recently, the European Union considered labelling crude oil from the oil sands in Alberta “dirty” as it produces more greenhouse gases in obtaining it compared to other methods of obtaining oil. This would make Alberta oil less welcome in European refineries. It would be a blow to the industry if European countries reduced the amount of oil they purchased from the oil sands. Use print and electronic sources to research this issue. Do you agree or disagree that the oil should be labelled as “dirty”? Explain your position. (Recall the interactive Writer’s Desk you used to help you write an opinion piece in Learning Activity 10). Marking guide • Opinion is stated clearly. • At least two relevant supporting facts or ideas are discussed. • At least two references are provided using the appropriate (APA) format. Oil sands from Alberta should be labelled something similar to “dirty” that represents how much energy is required to extract oil from the oil sands. According to canadaoilsands.ca, the Alberta oil sands account for 10% of Canada’s total GHG emissions and 0.15% of the world’s emissions. It also takes about as much energy to extract the oil as it produces they note. MIT News explains that we won’t be able to move away from fossil fuels to a clean energy future, which I know we can all support, unless we take action with policies and incentivizing more clean energy production. We make nutrition labels to help consumers make more informed choices of how much calories, fat,
carbs they get, we should be able to figure out where our energy comes from. I underlined my 2 main ideas to support my opinion. Resources GHG Emissions. (n.d.).
