The tar sands have quickly grown to become the most destructive
project on Earth. Their greenhouse gas emissions are the main reason
Canada's emissions keep rising, the main reason we cannot live up to
international agreements, the main reason we are becoming an
international pariah on the most important issue facing humanity.
By refusing to act aggressively on global warming, Stephen Harper
has ceded the field to the provinces. Some, like B.C. and Quebec have
stepped into this vacuum and given Canadians the action they want. But
Alberta has taken advantage of the vacuum to stomp on the gas pedal,
with exploding emissions from the tar sands being the result.
