Terrorist Attack on Tar Sands

Oddly, a terrorist attack on the Alberta tar sands would be about the best thing that could happen to Canada, the USA and the planet as a whole, though it would be quite unpleasant for Alberta. Making the area radio active for a century would delay exploitation of the fields until we had the technology for carbon sequestration. It would be the kick in the pants the USA needed to deal with its oil addiction and get on with alternative energy.
