Alberta Blinks

Back when Uranium was King, Uranium City in Saskatchewan, Canada was booming. Then the uranium mine closed, and everyone was out of work and the uranium boom was over.

With the new normal low price of oil, the bottom has fallen out of the oil-from-tar-sands market, and it is Alberta, Canada's turn to see where the garbage crew tossed the dust bin of history last time they went through.

When you see pictures like these of the haunted settlements of Modernity, it brings to mind the term "deconstruction"...

It also brings to mind the horror film Chernobyl Diaries

and other areas of the Cernobyl Exclusion Zone

In a few years, maybe soon Canadian film maker will make a Tar Sands Monster flick!
