#NoDAPL UPDATE: Greed Leads To Dakota Access Pipeline Expansion As Natives Continue to Suffer

Jordan Chariton reports on the greed that’s leading to an expansion of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and it’s not a question of if, but when there’s a new leak or explosion.

OIL AND GAS PIPELINES LOOK LIKE INCREASINGLY RISKY BETS On Sunday, two major utilities canceled plans to build the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a 600-mile conduit to carry fracked gas from West Virginia through Virginia to North Carolina, despite a favorable Supreme Court ruling. On Monday, a federal court ordered the Dakota Access pipeline to shut down by Aug. 5 after finding that it fell short of safety requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act. The dual defeats come at a moment when weak demand for oil, swelling debt and mounting concerns over climate change are forcing gas companies out of business and oil giants to dramatically downgrade the value of their assets.
