I sit down to write this piece with bleary eyes and a head that feels like it is filled both with cotton and the tines of a pitchfork piercing into my skull. It has been a powerful, profound, and overwhelming last few days. But the intensity of what I have experienced is nothing compared to the on-going struggle of the courageous landowners and blockaders in ruralEast Texas facing the onslaught and ravaging devastation of TransCanada and its Keystone XL Tar Sands pipeline.
I know that some of my readers are as concerned about environmental issues as I am. The Keystone XL pipeline is one of those issues that makes me sad about the current priorities in North America. Some of you may find this blog by Julia Butterfly Hill eye-opening. It was for me. Do you have any opinions on what we should be doing about the Keystone XL pipeline project?
