Pat Tracy described Marino’s work on Pipeline Fighters in the Roanoke Times:
“He has captured, in the powerful medium of film, the whole range of issues that are touched by this movement: from the global impact of fossil fuel extraction and use, the appalling collusion of government and corporations to devastate the natural environment for the sake of private profit, the severe danger to nationally protected forests and wide-spreading water source systems, to the anguish and economic ruin of so many property owners along the pipeline path.”
