Total writes off $9.3B in oilsands assets

We’re surprised that this hasn’t been bigger news;  when one of the world’s largest oil majors makes a massive nod towards the obsolescence of oil,  the markets take notice.

French energy giant Total says it is writing off $9.3-billion worth of oilsands assets in Alberta and cancelling its membership in the Calgary-based oil lobbying group - the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.  There is a telling quote in the release where they speculate that ..  ‘this resource might not be produced by 2050’
