Aha another film about the Canadian Tar sands… H2Oil but this time talking about the water issues.
Crude oil produced from the oil sands is the dirtiest oil in the world. It uses a lot of energy and a lot of water and leave a very large environmental footprint compared to all other forms of oil extraction. The process of oil sands extraction uses up to 4 barrels of fresh water to produce one barrel of crude oil.
H2Oil follows a voyage of discovery, heartbreak and politicization in the stories of those attempting to defend water in Alberta against tar sands expansion. Unlikely alliances are built and lives are changed as they come up against the largest industrial project in human history.
