The Tyee – 'Constant Denial': Liberal Report on Tar Sands Is Scathing
Why did a parliamentary committee suddenly destroy drafts of a final report on tar sands pollution? Here's what they knew. Potential buyers of tar sands oil want to know its true carbon footprint, but industry won't come clean. US politicians bend to foreign-backed pressure to soften climate bill.

Low-Carbon Fuel Rules in US Spurs Oil Sands PR Blitz
The government of Alberta, Canada and oil industry influence groups are investing in a PR campaign to counter the perception that oil sands mining is environmentally disastrous and worsens global warming pollution. Much of their effort is being spurred by the prospect of cleaner-fuel mandates across the United States, environmental groups say, which would shift incentives to low-carbon fuels. "I think that the oil industry is concerned," said Susan Casey-Lefkowitz, director of international programs at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
