Standing Rock Pipe Line

Standing Rock Pipeline

Thousands of protesters are in North Dakota at Standing Rock to decry an oil pipeline that will go through ND, Iowa and Illinois carrying half a million tons of crude oil every day. If there is any leak, the oil will contaminate the whole Mississippi River. "This pipeline threatens the lives of the more than 17 million people who rely on the Missouri River for their water."

Let's not forget recent history... Here's this trailer of DeepWater Horizon (Now in theaters. I saw it and it was devastatingly powerful), where the BP were trying to save $$, and it ended up being the worst oil spill in US history.
