Calling a proposed oil pipeline across the nation’s midsection a threat to public health in California, more than 1,000 nurses streamed across the Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday to urge that President Obama block its construction.

It might not have seemed like an obvious target for nurses who had gathered for a convention in San Francisco, but the protesters – clad in red scrubs – said the connection between health problems and the proposed Keystone XL pipeline is real.
