Tom Genung of Hastings, NE stands in front of the South Branch of the Platte River near the Iain Nicholson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary. Genung is an adrent opponent of Trans Canada’s failed bid to build the Keystone XL Pipeline across the Nebraska Sandhills and Ogalalla Aquifier. He is part of an informal group he calls the “Sheriff’s Posse” and testified in front of Nebraska’s Unicameral Legislature against the Keystone Pipeline XL construction. Genung and his fellow Nebraskans have been successful in stopping the bid for the time being, but still face efforts from Trans Canada to expand capacity to pump hot tar sands from Alberta, Canada South to oil refineries in Houston and the Gulf Coast area.
