David vs. Goliath in the treetops of Texas

Keystone XL is an oil pipeline that stretches all the way from Alberta, Canada to the northeastern coast of Texas, and when the plans for the project were first approved, they showed the pipeline going straight through David Daniel's property. Together with Tar Sands Blockade he created a "village in the trees" to block the pipeline. But with the promise of jobs and an energy independent US there is strong support for the pipeline. The battle against Keystone XL is the little man's fight against the oil giants, and has become an important symbol for the campaign against climate change. Can David defeat Goliath?
