Unjustified Protests Against the Dakota Access Pipeline

Merrill Matthews and Jack Rafuse go through the issues. Rafuse concludes:

Dakota access has been thoroughly – exhaustively – examined.  On every applicable issue, it has been found compliant.  It has played by the rules, and satisfied all legal demands made upon it.  Its approval has been won, and earned.  Continued delay will have deleterious consequence that extends far beyond just the immediate and obvious economic fallout. For these reasons, the Dakota Access Pipeline should be allowed to continue construction without further delay.
