  • Canadian Studies
    holding Canada back on climate change action Canada would be on track to reduce climate pollution over the next decade if not for the planned expansion of the tar sands industry Instead Canadian emissions are predicted to increase 4 FACT 5 The toxic tailing lakes are considered one of the largest human made structures in the world The toxic lakes in Northern Alberta span 176 square kilometers 17 and can be seen from space FACT 6 Producing a barrel of oil from the oil sands produces three times more greenhouse gas emissions 18 than a barrel of conventional oil In 2004 oil sands production surpassed one million barrels per day by 2015 oil sands production is expected to more than double 19 to about 2 2 million barrels per day FACT 7 The oil sands operations are the fastest growing source of heat trapping greenhouse gas in Canada By 2020 the oil sands will release twice the amount produced currently by all the cars and trucks in Canada FACT 8 Fully exploiting the oil sands could release more climate pollution than the USA and China combined have released in all their history It could surpass all the oil ever burned by humanity 8 FACT 9 Emissions from the Alberta oil sands increased 20 267 percent between 1990 and 2011 according to Environment Canada although per barrel emissions have gone down a reported 26 percent The overall increase of Canada s expanding tar sands extraction however has the nation s total emissions set to increase steadily over the next several decades FACT 10 Climate pollution from producing oil sands oil is projected to hit 104 Mt CO 2 by 2020 That is twice the current emissions from Norway or Bangladesh and exceeds the combined emissions from 85 nations 10 Sources 1 DETAILS The average passenger vehicle in the USA got 21 6 miles per US Gallon in 2010 and lasted for 212 000 miles 2 This requires burning 9 722 gallons of gasoline per vehicle whichwill produce 87 tonnes of CO 2 tCO2 Gasoline produces 8 92 kgCO2 USG allon 3 Using tar sands gasoline increases wells to wheels emissions by 22 leading to an extra 19 tCO2 for an average vehicle 2 DETAILS Canada produces 70 Mt of coal each year Burning that releases around 140 MtCO2 Canada produced 1 6 million barrels of tar sands per day in 2011 or 585 million barrels a year Each barrel of bitumen produces 0 521 tCO2 when burned That yields around 300MtCO2 double the emissions from burning all Canadian mined coal Tar sands production is expected to more than double by 20209 yielding over 650MtCO2 when burned 4 DETAILS Environment Canada predicts that between 2010 and 2020 21 climate pollution from all of Canada except the tar sands is set to decline between by 28 million tonnes of CO 2 MtCO2 However climate pollution from the planned expansion of tar sands is predicted to increase by 56 MtCO2 over that same period This will wipe out the climate progress from the rest of Canada and force the nation to increase rather than decrease climate pollution for at least another decade If regulations were put in place that capped the amount of climate pollution from the tar sands then Canada as a nation would be on track to reduce climate emissions Pembina report it is clear that oilsands expansion and the corresponding rise in emissions from this sector represent a serious barrier to Canada playing a constructive role in the global fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 8 DETAILS If all the carbon in the tar sands deposit aka oil in place were extracted and burned it would release between 1 0001 and 1 2002 billion tonnes of CO 2 GtCO2 However much of the carbon is unlikely to be economically viable to extract NASA climatologist James Hansen said a conservative estimate would be that around half of carbon deposits are eventually extracted leading him to estimate around 160 billion tonnes of carbon which would release 587 GtCO2 when used The Energy Resources Conservation Board ERCB currently estimates just 17 would be ultimately recoverable although they say they haven t completely surveyed the resource This lower estimate would result in wells to wheels emissions of 180 GtCO2 An average recovery figure for oil industry currently is listed at around 35 This would result in wells to wheels emissions of 361 GtCO2 The World Resources Institute s Climate Analysis Indicators Tool CAIT lists cumulative CO 2 emissions from 1850 2008 by nation in billions of tonnes of CO 2 GtCO2 including USA 345 EU 314 China 113 Germany 82 UK 69 Japan 47 France 33 India 30 and Canada 26 Either USA China or EU China total less than Hansen s 50 estimate The US Department of Energy estimates global coal oil and natural gas burning from 1752 through 2008 Coal 616 GtCO2 Oil 450 GtCO2 Gas 165 GtCO2 7 10 DETAILS Environment Canada expects production 21 emissions to hit 104 million tonnes of CO 2 MtCO2 by 2020 under current expansion plans US EIA lists 22 Norway emissions at 51MtCO2 Bangladesh emissions at 50 MtCO2 and 85 nations with combined emissions of 103 MtCO28 Close Close CTV News Podcast http www ctvnews ca video clipId 693359 23 Close Close Dr Charles F Doran receives Award Charles F Doran Andrew W Mellon Professor of

concern over failed states With the formation of the G20 there is a multilateral forum where Great Powers and the Rising Powers of Brazil Russia India and China can shape the global agenda Yet in
