If anything, it created more awareness for leaky pipes everywhere. It's not like major media reports on every busted oil pipe or contaminated water source.

To what degree would you say that Permit 12 awareness has increased?

A pipeline leak has spilled tens of thousands of gallons of crude oil into a North Dakota creek roughly two and a half hours from Cannon Ball, where protesters are camped out in opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline.

Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and other tribes, as well as environmentalists from around the country, have fought the pipeline project on the grounds that it crosses beneath a lake that provides drinking water to native Americans. They say the route beneath Lake Oahe puts the water source in jeopardy and would destroy sacred land.

North Dakota officials estimate more than 176,000 gallons of crude oil leaked from the Belle Fourche Pipeline into the Ash Coulee Creek. State environmental scientist Bill Suess says a landowner discovered the spill on Dec. 5 near the city of Belfield, which is roughly 150 miles from the epicenter of the Dakota Access pipeline protest camps.

I haven't paid very close attention to this, but I gather that the crux of the conflict is whether or not the gas line will actually be harmful to the tribe's water supply. Can anyone give me a good answer to that?

There's no such thing as a safe pipeline. They leak all the fucking time.

Maybe instead of opposing trump we should be stroking his ego

"Oh trump you are so beautiful! "what a best president ever!" "your hands are so huge! can you please find alternative energy sources so we can continue to admire your strenght?!"

Much better strategy really. It might work. Same way you get China to do stuff.

Protesters destroy land while protesting the possibility that that very land could be destroyed.

"Local and federal officials estimate there's enough trash and debris in the camp to fill about 2,500 pickup trucks. Garbage ranges from trash to building debris to human waste."
