Abstract Alberta's tar sands are sometimes called the Saudi Arabia of the North, an oil deposit so rich it's transformed Canada into an energy superpower. But refineries have clear cut boreal forests, consume fresh water and natural gas, feature 80 square kilometres of toxic tailings ponds, and emit 40 million tons of greenhouse gases annually. Albertans concerned about contaminated water, diminishing air quality and increased health risks say it's time to slow the pace down, and environmental groups are proposing steps to achieve a carbon-neutral tar sands.
