Why “Analysts” Are Wrong on Keystone XL Strategy: Elizabeth McGowan, a reporter who has done fantastic coverage

As someone working with Tar Sands Action, one of the groups working on Keystone XL, I wanted to put out a few quick responses. Over the last few months, the Keystone XL pipeline has transformed from a regional fight led by organizers along the route and indigenous communities in Alberta, to what the Washington Post referred to as “a headache for the Obama Administration.” That transformation in itself is a huge accomplishment: most pipelines or fossil fuel projects — just look at the opening of Powder River Basin for coal mining — happen in the dead of night without much opposition. To drag Keystone XL into the spotlight and turn it into a national bellwether is a testament to the hard work of not just “greens” (oh, the media’s love for slightly derogatory catch-alls) but of Nebraska ranchers, Texas farmers, environmentalists, young people, indigenous peoples, and many more.
