The Lakota Sioux are protesting a permit that is in serious question and violates the Paris Climate Accord based on current climate models.

The DOJ said " The Army will not authorize constructing the Dakota Access pipeline on Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe until it can determine whether it will need to reconsider any of its previous decisions regarding the Lake Oahe site under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or other federal laws. Therefore, construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe will not go forward at this time. The Army will move expeditiously to make this determination, as everyone involved -- including the pipeline company and its workers -- deserves a clear and timely resolution. In the interim, we request that the pipeline company voluntarily pause all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahe."

Yet the company says drilling in two weeks?

Will The President go out and tell the police to turn around?

Will as is usual the Army Corps buckle to the all powerful pipeline backers that are the same as President Obama's?

President Obama could go a long way to saving some sort of Legacy by going out there to meet with the Native American's. Will he?
