Tar Sands in Canada are worlds third-largest oil reserve with 173billion untouched barrels | Mail Online

The Tar Sands project in Alberta, near the centre of Canada, is controversial.  The UK’s Daily Mail, a paper that typically scorns environmental issues as the ravings of socialists, has a powerful set of photographs depicting the apocalyptic scenes of once lush landscapes.  It writes:

Once this landscape was a pristine wilderness roamed by deer now its the most destructive industrial project on earth.  Lush green forests once blanketed an area of the Tar Sands at Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada, larger than England.  The area where blackened earth now stands dubbed by environmentalists as most destructive industrial project on earth.  Boreal forest – once home to grizzly bears, moose and bison – is vanishing at rate second to Amazon deforestation
