Tarsands Keystone XL Rally

The ongoing discussion about whether to build the Keystone XL pipeline continues after the 2012 Presidential Election. Environmental groups, along with others, continue to urge President Obama to reject the pipeline that will bring some of the world's dirtiest crude oil from the tar sands in Canada through a pipeline to refineries in Texas. On November 18, following Bill McKibbon's DC stop on his "Do the Math" tour educating people about climate science, people in DC held a rally protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. WCL environmental law students and alumni, including Maggie Coulter ('14) and Ashley Gardana ('12), now with the Center for Biological Diversity, participated in the rally. Below are pictures from the event.
