Mass Immigration or the Alberta Tar Sands Project: Which Disaster Will Have The Greater Impact On GHG Emissions?

Our schizophrenic environmental movement and its parliamentary voice, the Green Party, continues to make the Alberta Tar Sands Project the focus of its wrath.

In fact, the federal Greens advocate an immigration intake 25% higher than the current Conservative government's. Like the vast majority of Greens across the world, they see no essential relationship between population growth and environmental degradation. So how does the Tar Sands project compare to immigration in the one measurement that Greens almost exclusively regard as an index of ecological impact---carbon emissions?
