Robert Redford to Obama: "Say No" to Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline (Video) : TreeHugger via @TreeHugger

And here's why Robert Redford still tops the nation's roster of celebrity environmental advocates ... In this slick video op-ed for the New York Times, he eloquently and winningly makes the top-to-bottom case for why the Keystone XL pipeline is a bad idea. He veers away from the wonkier points -- that the oil will be headed for the international markets anyways, and won't relieve energy dependence, for example -- and goes right for the gut.
