Seach Interest in the Tar Sands Peaked in 2006

Here are some charts showing how Google searches of terms tar sands, oil sands, and fracking compare. On a regional basis, searches for terms like tar sands or oil sands are mostly from Canada. This is a bit of a surprise, since the assumption here in Canada is that the world is very interested in the tar sands. It appears that there is much more interest in fracking.
