Oil Pipeline-Texas_Hass.jpg

Michael Bishop poses with a pair of flags flying in protest of the planned Keystone XL pipeline, near the entrance to his property south of Douglass, Texas, which is directly in the path of the project. Bishop and TransCanada Corp. are taking their argument over whether tar sands are crude oil before a Nacogdoches County judge Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012. Bishop, saying the company lied and that tar sands oil is not crude, wants all pipeline work on his 20-acre property to stop until the judge rules on whether the product TransCanada plans to carry through it is crude oil.
