CANADA'S NEW OIL RESERVES (Dublin issue)
Titles read: "CANADA'S NEW OIL RESERVES" (Dublin issue). <br/> <br/>Alberta, Canada. <br/> <br/>Various shots in a sand quarry of oil-bearing sand. A man rubs his hand over sandy rocks and shows his oil-covered hand to us. Dynamite charges are laid in a rock in the quarry and an explosion loosens the sand which is carried off to the refinery in a truck. <br/> <br/>At the refinery we see the complicated processes in involved in extracting the oil. The oil is used for aviation fuel and a lubricating spirit, while the residue is used for asphalt and the sand for glass blowing.

ALBERTA OIL SANDS
Tar sands upgrading plant
Smoking chimneys at an industrial plant at sunset. This is the tar sands upgrader plant at the Syncrude plant in Alberta, Canada. The tar sands are the largest deposits of bitumen in the world, and the extraction and processing into synthetic crude forms the largest industrial project on the planet. It has attracted criticism for its environmental impact. The oil produced is three times more carbon intensive than oil from conventional supplies. The area has also seen a very fast rate of deforestation, and polluted water from the plant has leached out into the Athabasca River.

The tar sands are the largest industrial project on the planet, and the world's most environmentally destructive. The synthetic oil produced from them is three times more carbon intensive than conventional oil supplies, a disaster for the climate. They are responsible for the second fastest rate of deforestation on the planet, second only to the Amazon Rainforest. They produce millions of litres of highly polluted water every day which leaches out into the Athabasca river and has serious health impacts on First Nation peoples living downstream.

CANADIAN OIL PIPELINE PROPOSAL / WHITE HOUSE PROTEST
CANADIAN OIL PIPELINE PROPOSAL / WHITE HOUSE PROTEST / FTG OF PROTESTORS SITTING OUTSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE HOLDING SIGNS AND DEMONSTRATING / FTG OF POLICE ARRESTING PROTESTORS (Reuters) - Thousands of opponents of a $7 billion pipeline that would boost U.S. dependence on Canadian oil sands plan to get arrested in protests over the next two weeks that they hope will help persuade the Obama administration to kill the project. The State Department is set to issue a final environmental impact report this month on the Keystone XL pipeline project that would bring oil sands petroleum from Alberta to Texas refineries. The department hopes to make a final decision on the TransCanada Corp line by the end of the year. Beginning on Saturday, protesters from all of the country's 50 states plan to linger in an area outside the White House where they are likely to be arrested, organizers say. They plan to conduct the civil disobedience citing what they see as the pipe's risks to the environment in waves of 100 people a day.
