UPDATE:  See photo of McKibben and Sierra Club's Brune chained to White House fence below (photo by David Fenton).

Earlier:  Daryl Hannah (left)  was one of several prominent folks arrested at the big Keystone XL protest at the White House today.  Others includes Robert Kennedy Jr. and Bill McKibben.   They tied themselves to gate.  And dig this:  "Executive director Michael Brune is the first Sierra Club leader in the group's 120-year history to be arrested in an act of civil disobedience. The club's board of directors approved the action as a sign of their opposition to the $7 billion pipeline, which would carry oil derived from tar sands in western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast."

Big rally coming Sunday, hopes for tens of thousands.   McKibben says aiming for "biggest climate rally" ever.
