The oil sands have an appalling environmental reputation: they involve deforestation, require vast use of water, emit carbon and produce a murky waste of bitumen that is dumped in “tailing ponds” in the Canadian countryside. Barack Obama has vowed to wean the US off its addiction to “dirty, dwindling and dangerously expensive oil”.
