Canada's Tar Sands is the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. In 2011 it was believed the reserve amounted to 170.2 billion barrels of oil, or about 11% of total global oil reserves. But the development of Canada's Oil Sands is concerning environmentalists for several reasons, not least the fact that producing "tar oil", or "sand oil" as it's also known, releases three times the volume of greenhouse gas emissions as conventional oil.

Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment. Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world. Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century. Check o...

The oil sands, which would feed the Keystone XL pipeline, have created thousands of jobs in Canada's Alberta province, and the extraction industry has tripled in size since 1995. Government estimates say the country may double its current output of heavy crude by the end of this decade. But some researchers and residents are concerned Alberta's economic engine is exacting a heavy environmental toll. Correspondent Michael Davie explores how oil-sands production is changing Alberta, and speaks with industry supporters about the economic benefits and with industry critics who say it's harming the air, water, and wildlife.

US politicians often speak of reducing demand for imported oil coming from unfriendly nations. But the biggest foreign supplier of oil to the United States is Canada, a friendly nation. Much of the 1.4 million barrels of petroleum Canada sends south every day comes from an unconventional and somewhat dirty source, so-called "oil sands," sometimes disparagingly referred to as "tar sands" because of the thick, gooey nature of the product. VOA's Greg Flakus visited the oil sands region and filed this report from Fort McMurray, in Alberta Province.
