North Dakota’s Lake Oahe has been ground zero for the Dakota Access Pipeline protests and those who have stood against the oil delivery system’s construction are now rejoicing. According to various reports, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied permits that would have allowed for the crews to break ground on the controversial product.

Not every industrial initiative masked as “good-paying jobs” program is worth the country’s time. President Barack Obama, flanked by Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry made that quite clear when they formally announced that they would not be partaking the Keystone XL pipeline project.
