Olbermann, McKibben Talk Tar Sands: Pipeline Will Be "Game Over" for Climate

The Tar Sands Pipeline protests which put prominent activists in jail this weekend--220 arrests in DC and counting--is finally drawing big covering in the media.

Bill McKibben, one of the leading members of the environmental movement, went on Keith Olbermann's Countdown last night and said that this issue is "gut check time" for President Obama, who will be able to decide the issue on his own.

He also went into some detail on why this proposed project is so deadly and dangerous, and would be "game over" for the environment, and the "premier environmental test" for Obama.
