The Keystone XL pipeline has received a lot of attention due to the potential environmental impact the project could have on land across America. TransCanada, the company behind the construction is now being accused of lying to land owners. Land owners are claiming the firm said crude oil would be transported through the pipes and not nearly solid product extracted from tar sands and now Michael Bishop, one of the land owners, has filed a lawsuit against the oil giant. A judge has halted construction of the pipeline on Bishops property and Greg Palast an investigative journalist gives us his take on the never ending controversy.
