Tar sands are one of the most carbon-polluting sources of oil on the planet – up to 22% more carbon-intensive than the average oil used in the U.S. 

Yet tar sands producers do not have to pay into the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund because tar sands is NOT classified as oil.

Refining tar sands crude results in dangerous emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid mist and toxic heavy metals, such as lead, nickel  and mercury.

Heavy metal toxicity cause progressive physical, muscular and neurological degenerative diseases. Tar sands contain more cancer-causing chemicals than conventional crude -- 11 times more sulfur, 11 times more nickel, six times more nitrogen and five times more lead. 
Producing a barrel of tar sands takes 3-4 times more energy and four times more water than processing a barrel of conventional oil.
