The government’s decision to halt the completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline will hearten its many opponents, but will have no significant practical effect. If anything, this represents a victory of image over reality, despite the claims of native Americans, Hollywood stars and veterans. It seems as if very little logic has been applied to the question, and unsupported claims are repeated ad nauseum in the media.

Some have broader goals than simply changing the pipeline route. Climate change activist Bill McKibben said “We cannot pump more oil.  Frontline communities, and particularly indigenous people, have been in the forefront of this climate fight.” Some on-site protesters agree, with Faith Gemmel saying, “We strongly feel that fossil fuels should be left in the ground, and this country and all countries need to start moving toward sustainable and renewable energies.”  Unfortunately, this attitude is contradicted by the protesters own reliance on gasoline fired automobiles and, with the onset of winter, propane for heating.  Photos showing protesters on horseback, but with lines of parked cars behind them, belie the supposed opposition to fossil fuel use. – READ MORE

    Okay listen im gonna tell u libtards this once. OIL MAKES AMERICA MONEY, DUMMY! why would you block a pipeline when u know for a fact that the oil brings money to different communities that need it. Even if a little bit of oil seeped out of the pipeline, children could collect some and get PAID for it. economic opertunity in america comes from oil, coal, air conditioning manufacture plants, etc. etc. the list goes on but one thing i hate is when jessica jew and her pals decided to go and protest this whole oil thing with the indian yahoos it becomes a negative issue!
