A new report looks at how different types of oil from around the world stack up when it comes to their role in climate change. Researchers examined the greenhouse gas emissions of 30 crude varieties from the oilfield to the refinery to the tailpipe. Joule (Jool) Bergerson (BERG-er-son) is an assistant professor of chemical and petroleum engineering at the University of Calgary. She says heavy oils, like Alberta's oilsands, were among the highest emitters. (For instance, oilfields where excess natural gas is flared, are big emitters.)
