Avatarsands and other videos

"Canada's Avatarsands: the scenes too dirty for theatres"

Based on a full-page advertisement in Variety magazine 2 Mar 2010 by 55 environmental organizations -- including Environmental Defence Canada, Greenpeace, FOE, Sierra Club, and Corporate Ethics International -- that shocked the oil industry into a multimillion dollar greenwash campaign. See examples on the CAPP (Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers) and Canada's Oil Sands websites.

More Dirty Oil Sands videos, Polaris Institute's Tar Nation video game, Art not Oil (UK) on BP oil spill, ExxonMobil TV Commercial spoof by 'Solar Dave" Dugdale, Democracy in Action (US) Tar Sands Blow video. Follow the oil money in US politics: Oil Change International and Opensecrets.org. Since 2008 Exxon has spent $80 million, Chevron $33 million, boasting that their lobbyists prevented US Congress action on tarsands crude, lowcarbon fuels, oil shales, and shale gas. See this report by the lobby Center for North American Energy Security.
