The Tar Sands are the dirtiest and most desperate attempt yet to profit from -and prolong- humanity's crippling addiction to oil. Tar Sands development is turning once pristine stretches of ancient forest into desolate, post-apocalyptic landscapes and producing toxic pollution that is harming the health and quality of life the regions Indigenous First Nations communities. Until recently, BP was the only major oil company not to be in the Tar Sands. But all this has changed. The company, which used to boast that it was 'Beyond Petroleum' has decided it wants a piece of the dirty oil action. Only a powerful campaign can stop it now. "The Tar Sands is the largest industrial project in the world. It is also the dirtiest. Tar Sands produce three to five times as much CO-2 per barrel as conventional oil. There's enough under the ground to push us over the edge into runaway climate change. It should be everyone's concern" - Lionel Lepine, Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation
