DescriptionThe BP green and yellow logo, launched in 2000, was designed to suggest "heat, light, and nature, " according to the BP Web site. In this sticker, the logo is splattered with oil. As of 2013, BP is involved in three oil sands lease areas, all of which are in Alberta, Canada. Extracting oil from tar stands produces three to four times more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional oil extraction. Such work has also created mass deforestation and water contamination. No-Tar-Sands.org is the Web site for the UK Tar Sands Network who campaigns with indigenous communities affected by tar sands development in Canada. The group targets governments, UK companies, banks and investors operating in the Alberta Tar Sands.
