Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oil Sands is a book written by Canadian lawyer, talk-show host and lobbyist Ezra Levant , which makes a case for exploiting the Athabasca oil sands and its sister projects in Alberta. In the page book, Ezra Levant makes the case that in terms of four criteria the environment, conflict, economic and social justice and freedom from oppression the Canadian petroleum industry is "heads above other crude producers like Saudi Arabia, Libya, Nigeria and Venezuela". But why has criticism of the oil sands been so disproportionately loud compared to criticism of other, larger, more disturbing sources of oil? Oil sands in Alberta have a proven reserve of billion barrels 2. Canada's primary export market, the United States, has been ambivalent to the environmental questions surrounding the exploitation of the oil sands, with Republicans being generally more supportive of the resource,  while president Barack Obama , a Democrat , said that "there are some environmental questions about how destructive they are". In an attempt to refocus the debate, Ezra Levant, a conservative political activist and former publisher of the Western Standard , examines the ethical aspects of importing oil from countries where political oppression and human rights violations are prevalent, and argues that oil sands production from Canada should be considered the only true ethical alternative to OPEC oil exports.
