Guarding the Ogallala

6min | 2012
The danger posed by Keystone Pipeline XL has turned Nebraska rancher Bruce Boettcher into a hardcore activist. He spent thousands of dollars of his own money to produce radio ads against the pipeline. Bruce's fight has taken him from life on a ranch to joining millions in Washington, DC voicing their opposition to Keystone. In this episode we explore why Keystone Pipeline XL has ignited passion across this country. Journey OnEarth follows correspondent Roshini Thinakaran, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, as she reports about the people most impacted by pollution, oil spills, toxic chemicals, and communities coping with climate change across the country.

I think the video was great and keeps Americans informed on what's really going on. Without this kind of information we would not be able to filter through all the propaganda the government keeps pushing down our throats. Good job! How you have a follow up and good to now that Starbucks linked you.

Happy that you like the Video...a big issue here for Obama...the farmers and ranchers need clean water above all else...once the oil gets into the water underground..all is lost! We need clean water more than oil!
