Climate activist arrests begin at White House

Writer and climate activist Bill McKibben is among several dozen arrested outside the White House at the start of more than two weeks of planned demonstrations by activists opposed to construction of an oil pipeline carrying petroleum from Canadian "tar sands" to the United States. Groups backing the actions say that more than 2,000 people have signed on to be arrested during the length of the protests.
