It was a festive atmosphere outside the Ronald Reagan building in downtown Washington on October 7th 2011, as protesters, many from National Wildlife Federation, flooded the plaza with chants, songs, and demands that President Obama reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.
Inside the hearing room, dozens waited to testify against the proposed project. Among them were NWF President and CEO Larry Schweiger. Schweiger delivered powerful testimony calling for clean energy policies from the President and the administration.
