Bloody oil – shut down the tar sands!
Inside this issue:
As conventional sources of oil are running dry, or are too hazardous to extract, oil companies are turning to 'unconventional' deposits of the black stuff. By far the largest is Canada's tar sands, the second biggest oil reserve in the world. The past decade has seen a black gold rush of unprecedented proportions, and the tar sands development in Alberta is now the largest industrial development on earth. But it is also, perhaps, the most destructive. New Internationalist exposes the severe human and environmental costs of Canada's dramatic transformation from global good guy to corrupt petro-state, and profiles some of the key figures in what is shaping up to be an iconic struggle in the effort to drag the world back from the brink of a fossil fuel-dependent future.
