Yes, more people should follow the Sioux tribe initiative and protest against environmental hazards. There are so many environmental hazards out there and they are often caused by wealthy and powerful people who are not likely to make changes unless forced to do so. That's why it's so important to make voices heard through protests and other actions.
Yes, More people should follow the Sioux tribe initiative and protest against environmental hazards. Although environmental hazards do not seem to affect any of us as individuals enough that we deem it to be our responsibility to protest environmental hazards, it really is all of our responsibility to protect our environment.
As the number of environmental hazards is on the rise, we must stop and wonder if this is due, in some part, to the complacency of society. Many questionable policies have had deadly consequences. Perhaps protests would decrease the ever-growing number of environmental factors adversely affecting the health and safety of the general public.
The Native American culture and the Sioux tribe is sensitive to the environment and they maintain a respect for nature. The tribe is protesting the oil pipeline in North Dakota because of their sacred lands and the hazard to drinking water. It is important to heed the warning of this group and consider the environmental impact of oil projects.
Sure, if you live without the need for gas powered vehicles like many of the Sioux tribe. These pipelines are useless to you. Problem is, the rest of this country needs a regular supply of oil to run. Sure, there are other methods to transport the needed oil but those too can have even worse environmental impacts should those methods leak like oil spills of the past. With an increasing need for oil, it would only make those incidences happen more often where a pipeline would create a much safer method of transporting vast amounts of oil.
Words are NOT ENOUGH! We need judgement with fair results for those who have suffered too long already! It happened in America, and now it has happened again in Palestine. When are the white people of the planet going to see that God cares about His children of ALL colors, not just the ones with money and power! If we don't fix it now, it will be too late for those living under unbearable conditions with a poisoned water table and radioactive dust in their lungs! We took their good lands and rivers and streams and gave them desert in return! How FAIR is that to the people who were here hundred
