Environmentalists Speak Out On DAPL
Several environmentalists addressed the dangers Energy Transfer Partners inflicts on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe with the development of the Dakota Access Pipeline at a press conference on Tuesday at Oceti Sakowin Camp.
“We are standing for justice. We’re standing against what Energy Transfer Partners has foisted upon the Standing Rock Sioux and the American Republic…This is a pipeline that cannot be safe…It is inevitable that air, water, and climate pollution will result from this project,” said Michael Brune of the Sierra Club.
According to its website, the Dakota Access Pipeline enables 100 percent domestically produced light sweet crude oil from North Dakota to reach major refining markets in a more direct, cost-effective, safer and responsible manner.
