Tar Sands: Canada for Sale

What looks like dense topsoil is actually black gold, once dismissed as bottom-of-the-barrel petroleum, expensive to extract, dirty to refine. But with the U.S. craving energy security and new super-consumers like China and India starving for oil, Canada's 'unconventional' crude has become 'conventional'. The Tar Sands is the largest capital project on the planet. Critics claim it is also the world's biggest environmental catastrophe.
