New report shows tar sands true greenhouse gas emissions

Reaction from Climate Action Network Canada to a new report submitted to the European Commission on the dirty truth about tar sands greenhouse gas emissions.

"This report blows the lid off of the Canadian and Albertan government's campaign of misinformation in promoting dirty tar sands fuel in the European Union. The report clearly lays the grounds for strong clean fuel policies in Europe, which ensure that the tar sands are held accountable for their substantially higher greenhouse gas emissions. The Government's of Canada and Alberta have been engaging in false advertising of the tar sands, and Europe is not buying it. We look forward to seeing European Parliament integrate this important research into their progressive clean fuel policy, the fuel quality directive." more.
