Tar Sands from Space via Google Maps

Tar sands development is set to triple and Canada could very soon be among the largest oil producing countries in the world - with a horrific environmental damage to follow.

As an addendum to my previous post on the tar sands, here is a direct link on Google Maps clearly showing a massive project outside Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Zoom in on the marked coordinates to clearly see the development, including several large tailings ponds.
