Al Gore's Daughter Arrested in the Trenches of a Climate Protest (Video)


On Wednesday, a dozen protesters with the group Resist the Pipeline were arrested for nonviolently lying down in a trench being dug by Spectra Energy for its pipeline.

Several more were arrested for trespassing on private property. The action sought to draw a connection between pipelines like Spectra’s and a mass grave that was dug last month in Pakistan in preparation for a deadly heat wave.

For more, we speak with Karenna Gore, director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary.
