The Dakota Access Pipeline — the site of major protests and where journalist Amy Goodman had charges dismissed Monday — isn’t the only fossil fuel pipeline that’s drawing controversy; here in Florida, environmentalists are protesting against the Sabal Trail Pipeline.

Our guest, Tim Martin, is with Florida Suncoast Sierra Club and helped to organize a protest on Saturday outside the offices of Duke Energy in St. Petersburg. Duke is part owner of the pipeline.
