    Study looked at only " new Greenpeace report ranking potential carbon emissions" and doesnt account for the destruction of the Muskeag ecosystem and the probably doesnt account for the release of C02 and methane caused by the destruction of the Muskeag.

    Greenpeace ranked Tar Sands 5th in the world........

    And methane is only used in the study twice, never in conjunction with Alberta or Muskeag destruction.

      this report. The report wants us all to consider the total global pollution. Also they consider the Tar Sands already underway whereas some of the coal projects aren't "fully realized."
