Why I’m marching: I’m marching to help make visible the hidden human and environmental costs of tar sands and shale oil. The burden of fossil-fuels is borne by those who rarely use the product, especially since a huge amount of the oil coming through Iowa is being exported. More and more, the Midwest, akin to the coal-industry-destroyed Appalachians, is being expected to bear the negative impacts of oil and gas production and transportation.

About me: I’m a surgical oncologist and palliative care physician. I love politics, hosting talk shows, and squash (the game, but the vegetable’s not bad either). At age 62, I’m a new father to a three-year old. I’m also the recent recipient of a new hip, so the other reason I’m marching, besides concern about the Dakota Access Pipeline, is to expedite my rehab program.
