From the Sierra Club:

By 2011, tar sands plants are expected to produce emissions equivalent to more than 80 million tonnes of CO2 per year- that’s more than the emissions of ALL of Canada’s passenger cars put together over an entire year!

From CO2 Now:

CO2Now.org republishes and organizes global climate data and related information from leading science and media sources around the world.  The website and its online tools are produced independently by informed, non-scientists to give people of many backgrounds easy access to the world's most current and reliable numbers, targets and reports on the planet we share.  CO2Now.org works to advance CO2 literacy as a stepping stone to decisions and solutions that will bring humanity's main environmental crises to an end: global warming, climate change and ocean acidification.
