President Obama has rejected the Keystone XL pipeline that would have moved oil from Canada’s heavily-polluting tar sands to refinery complex on the US gulf coast. Is it just a symbolic victory, or will it actually impact oil extraction? We’ll talk to analyst Antonia Juhasz.

- Antonia Juhasz, oil industry analyst and independent journalist who’s written several books about the politics of oil, most recently Black Tide.
- Meera Subramanian, award-winning journalist, an editor at Killing The Buddha, and now author of A River Runs Again.
