Following the Sandpiper: Pipelines As Modern Trade Routes
(3 comments) Will we, as a nation, fall prey to "treaties" promising us riches beyond belief that big oil dangles? Will Congress and our President also lie to us, just as Jefferson did? Will we wrap ourselves in oil and drown in the salty byproducts of fracking while we watch towns burn from train explosions and die of thirst after our aquifers are poisoned?

North Dakota Culture of Silence Opens the Door Wide for Big Oil
(1 comments) Are we collectively opening the door to unbridled oil exploration when we do not question intent or at the very least demand information on infrastructure? Are we a generation of unwitting guides, leading the way to the destruction of our culture and way of life?

North Dakota Land and Water in Peril
(2 comments) We agreed that oil exploration and extraction in the Bakken Formation was taking a mighty toll on indigenous and white communities alike. The stark difference was that white residents of North Dakota seemed to be rolling over to the inevitability of big oil and its impact upon the social, political and environmental landscapes of their communities.

Murder, Mayhem and Mexican Mafia Stalk the Bakken Oil Fields
(5 comments) The Bakken oil patch is slowly turning into a killing field winding through 9,000 temporary housing projects called "man camps." Fueled by drugs, alcohol and desperation, the innocent homeless and the guilty desperate dregs of humanity are forced to sleep in cars and under bridges as the workforce explodes, infrastructure implodes, and social mores collapse.
