I remember reading something that a man who had worked on the construction of the Keystone XL had written. He was talking about having seen some shoddy construction work done, and he had predicted that there were bound to be problems. We have more than enough oil infrastructure in this country. As long as we have Trump in office, though, there's no hope on scaling back fossil fuels – that's for sure.

What irks me is that these companies know of existing issues and still do nothing about it. In fact they have fixed things so they make money if the oil flows or leaks. Even the fines are so minor it is laughable and does nothing to improve things.

There were millions of people going to be affected by this one pipeline directly for their water and water to animals and crops. Where was everyone? Although Standing Rock was impressive, where was everyone on this? Will it take it to be too late before people wake up?
