    5/15/12 --- Joining us is the environmentalist Bill McKibben, who recently led demonstrations at the White House that delayed the approval of a pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta to Texas. The contentious Keystone XL pipeline has become a hot election year issue. He is the author of several books, including The End of Nature, and his latest, Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet. Also joining us is Josh Fox, writer and director of the acclaimed documentary Gasland, which firstrevealed the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing, or ?fracking.?
