Activists Hail 3 Back-To-Back Pipeline Victories



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Tamara Toles O'Laughlin.

Within a 24-hour period, environmental activists saw not 1, not 2, but 3 major oil and gas pipelines face serious obstacles. The Keystone XL Pipeline, a transatlantic project bringing tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to the US Gulf Coast is lacking a critical permit that the US Supreme Court refused to intervene in, leaving a lower court ruling in place against the permit.

Another court has ordered the shutdown of the Dakota Access Pipeline which cuts through South Dakota and a number of other states and which was the focus of sustained protests in 2016 in Standing Rock.

A third, lesser known project called the Atlantic Coast pipeline was canceled altogether.
