Tar Sands Campaign

There are many organizations in the United States, Canada and Europe engaged in the campaign to mitigate the damage and stop the expansion of the tar sands. Corporate Ethics is one of them. While their individual organizational goals may vary, most of these organizations hope to accelerate the transition to clean and sustainable energy economy by slowing the expansion of the tar sands.

Why Alberta’s Tar Sands?

The escalating production and consumption of tar sands oil, along with the threat of dozens of new coal-fired power plants, pose the greatest threats to a clean energy future for North America. Tar sands oil and coal constitute the dirtiest, most carbon intensive forms of fossil fuel, yet the federal governments of Canada and US continue to promote them and carbon capture and sequestration as the solution to US “energy security.” Public policy that would bring emissions under control, increase fuel efficiency, and promote development of clean energy technology continues to occupy the second tier of public policy priorities. We are at a critical crossroad for global warming: unless civil society effectively blocks the road to an even dirtier fossil fuel future, we will not achieve the carbon reductions necessary to stave off global environmental catastrophe.
