• Irony: How Many Keystone Pipeline Protesters Arrested at the Capital Drove Gas-Powered Cars to Washington D.C.?

    Some came from as far as New Orleans

    Bill McKibben of the anti-global warming activist group 350, tweeted about the hundreds of students who were arrested during an Keystone XL pipeline prostest yesterday:

    About 1,000 prosters, many of them students, took to the Washington D.C. yesterday to urge, “climate action and a rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline,” said Nick Stracco, a senior at Tulane University.

    Nearly 400 of the event’s protesters were arrested.

    But how many anti-fossil fuels freedom fighters got into oil and gas-powered cars, buses, planes, and trains to apply pressure to the jet-setter-in-chief Barack Obama in protest of the expansion of an oil pipeline?
