Oil sands and our future pensions

Kjell Aleklett, Aleklett's Energy Mix

“Swesif”, Sweden’s Forum for Sustainable Investment, had invited me to a symposium on "Tar sands – an ethical pitfall?" The reason for the discussion on tar sands is that Norway’s Statoil is going to invest huge amounts into the tar sands and Swedish pension funds are investors in Statoil. My task was to describe the role of Canada’s tar sands in the global energy system and to discuss the significance of tar sands for global energy supply.
