Saudia Arabia apparently doesn't like Canada marketing its oil sands as "ethical oil".

Is Saudi Arabia losing its cool over Canada's growing oil sands? It certainly seems that way, based on the Middle East kingdom's bizarre over-reaction to television commercials that promote Canada's "ethical oil," in contrast to oil coming from Saudi Arabia, a regime that oppresses women.

The commercials are sponsored by a tiny grassroots organization based in Toronto, EthicalOil.org, that encourages consumers to favour "ethical" oil from Canada over "conflict" oil that comes from undemocratic regimes, where most of the world's oil reserves are located.

I think that "ethical oil" is a great term, and I'm glad it makes our good buddies in Saudia Arabia uncomfortable.
