The following is quoted from an article titled: US Green Groups Warn of Oil Sands "Poison" http://www.truthout.o...­

"Although a new refinery has not been built in the United States for over 30 years, five new refineries are currently under consideration."

The report notes three of the five new refineries would process tar and oil. But it warns the consequences could be devastating, highlighting a recent case of about 500 birds that died after landing on a toxic tailing pond from oilsands operations.

The analysis also identifies 17 new expansions of existing facilities and warns the changes could wipe out many trees in the boreal forest that would be cleared to make way for tarsands extraction.
