Is the Canadian tar sands project the dirtiest oil project in the world?

    It’s difficult to make claims about the “dirtiest” project in the world. On the one hand, the Athabasca Oil Sands are the site of what’s essentially a huge strip mine. Strip mining is a pretty nasty form of extraction and is often associated with harm to the environment. On the other hand, Canada has relatively strict laws in place to protect the environment, so it’s not as horrible a project as it might be if the sands were in (for example) China.
