While there are plenty of other worthy energy issues to take to the streets about, the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline in many ways symbolizes what's so deeply wrong about our current energy situation, and the entrenched power structure profiting handsomely from it.

While the fight isn't quite over, if it weren't for the courageous and coordinated activism of the folks at Tar Sands Action, there's no doubt in my mind that the State Department would have already approved the whole climate-killing project.
