If the National Business Book Award...

... going to Ezra Levant's Ethical Oil  (essentially, we are not Gadaffi, so anything goes with energy extraction) made you throw up a little, what are you gonna do?
Well, you could read this instead: Andrew Nikiforuk,   Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent.
Or this   William Marsden,  Stupid to the Last Drop: How Alberta is Bringing Environmental Armageddon to Canada (and doesn’t seem to care)  which actually won the Business Book Award in 2009.
Or this: David Finch, Pumped: Everyone's Guide to the Oil Patch a readable primer, and an award-winner in Alberta.
Or even this: my Beaver column on the history of oil and Alberta. 
The National Business Book Award website is here.
