Well lets put our thoughts together
and see what we can do.
From the sources you provided, one is demonizing the protestors and painting a light of an unruly crowd breaking the law. The other has the Engineer
Corps not wanting to touch the pipeline's last section without full and comprehensive discussions with the Sioux.
If this is the pipeline I'm thinking of then it would appear nobody wants it anywhere near them. So, it would appear that pissing off the native
American was the last option... For once
But, how safe and foolproof can they guarantee the pipe will be, it's crossing under a lake after all. Is it possible to jack it up in the air 30 or
Full towns have been raised a few feet in the past but who wants a great big pipe going through the country... Clearly nobody wants the damn thing
I'm not a geologist but I do know earthquakes can happen anywhere, albeit small ones. Still nothing is infestructable and nobody can say with 100%
certainty that a rupture will not occur.
It's really early/late here and I can't be bothered to look up the location in any depth. I guess a good thing to check is the Sioux rights to the
land and the potentiality of sacred burial grounds being desecrated. I'll do some digging tomorrow if I have time.
But other than that, for now. All I can offer is ludicrous ideas of sky high pipeline's or a lot of workers, buckets and very steady hands... No?
Heck If the oil is so precious and needed build some oil refineries there and ship the end product by road, rail and sea... Though I'd guess little
profit will be in that, it's usually about the make-up.
