Sure, but they're clearly different sites, likely using different technologies.They are both heavy oil production sites in Northern Alberta. I didn't think I needed comment but media always portrays the 1st photo when the 2nd photo portrays modern oil sands extraction.
I imagine showing caribou grazing on the 2nd site (I can't find that pic right now) would make a lot of activist heads explode.
They might also be different types of extraction, different time periods etc.
As far as the media... follow the money.
