WISE WOMEN MEDIA FOR 10/26/12--Returning Guest, Journalist and Photographer Julie Dermansky on TAR SANDS DIRECT ACTIONS
After spending some time in East Texas, I have some stories, video clips and photos to share about the battle environmental activists and landowners are waging against the Keystone XL pipeline.
Here is a link to my blog: http://juliedermansky.blogspot.com/2012/10/fight-against-keystone-pipeline-in-east.html
A link to NRDC's Onearth blog: http://www.onearth.org/article/keystone-xl-texas-landowners-arrests

Back home, all is not well on the Gulf, the Coast Guard and BP acknowledged the oil above the site of the Macando well is BP oil. "Drill baby drill" still seems to be the predominate way here. Final approval for the Keystone XL pipeline, though delayed until after the election, seems like a foregone conclusion since construction of the southern portion has been fast-tracked. Too bad no one knows how to clean up a tar sands spill. So much about the keystone XL pipeline doesn't seem right to me yet both political parties are ultimately for it.
SO MUCH to talk about! Julie returns to talk about what she has seen and documented at the TAR SANDS ACTIONS. Don't miss this show and feel free to call in with questions or join us in the chat room!
