MPs accused of funding tar sands

Date : 15th March 2010, Source : The Telegraph (UK)



MPs could be funding one of the most environmentally damaging projects in the world through their pension fund, it has been claimed. The extraction of oil from tar sands in Canada has been blamed for health problems in the region and produces huge amounts of carbon dioxide both in the production and burning of the oil. The fate of the Native Americans living in the area reportedly inspired the recent blockbuster Avatar and a new film Dirty Oil, narrated by Canadian actress Neve Campbell, highlights the risk to pristine local forests.
