Texarkana College STEM Club presents the documentary film, Above All Else

Mar 31, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Texarkana College STEM Club presents the documentary film, Above All Else on Tuesday, April 12 at 7 PM in the Stilwell Theater located in the TC Humanities Building, 2500 N. Robison Road, Texarkana, Texas.

Above All Else is a dramatic, firsthand account from the front lines of the climate fight, shedding light on the high cost of resistance to the enormous political and financial power of the fossil fuel industry.

First proposed in 2008, the Keystone XL pipeline (pdf) is a multi-billion dollar project that is slated to transport tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, across six U.S. states to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast – a path which involved cutting straight through the land of David Daniel (right), a retired stuntman and high wire artist living in East Texas. While proponents claimed that the pipeline would increase North American energy independence and create jobs, the Keystone XL has faced opposition from day one, and Daniel joined that resistance.
