Protesting the Keystone PIpeline | Blue Oklahoma
Oklahoma City activist and grandmother, Nancy Zorn, 79, using a bike-lock, attached her neck directly to an earth-mover, which brought construction of TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline to a halt, outside Allen, OK. Photo courtesy Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance Nancy Zorn and Stefan Warner are two Oklahoma City activists with the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance, arrested for nonviolently protesting construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Opposition to the pipeline and development of the Canadian tar sands is based on a long-range view of tar sands development and its threat to sustainability on earth. A major concern is the huge contribution tar sands oil is projected to make to global warming and climate change. Ninety seven percent of climate scientists agree that the primary cause of global warming is the rising atmospheric concentration of CO2 and methane resulting from human activities.
