Top 5 reasons why tar sands cover-up “ethicaloil.org” is a seriously dirty trick | Platform.
Thanks to Suzaan Boettger for drawing attention to PLATFORM’s rebuttal of the “ethicaloil.com” website. “ethicaloil.com” is a web site that purports to demonstrate that tar sands are an ethical form of oil extraction as distinct from “conflict oil”. We know that in the Middle East and Africa oil is associated with conflict ranging from invasion to insurgency and terrorism as well as corruption. Supposedly oil from tar sands is better and this site, crafted to look like an activist project, is trying to spin, spin, spin.
