The environmental movement needs to engage in “courageous acts of civil disobedience” to stop projects like the pipeline, said Hannah. Keystone XL would bring oil-sands crude from the Canadian province of Alberta to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast. In the interview, she also likened the importance of environmental protests like this to the Suffragette and Civil Rights movements.

The actress, whose movie credits include Blade Runner, Splash and Kill Bill Vol. 1, spoke to energyNOW! correspondent Lee Patrick Sullivan on August 20 from the sidelines of the American Renewable Energy Day 2011 conference in Aspen, Colorado.
