The Fight Over The Dakota Access Pipeline Continues

Last month, a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to conduct further environmental reviews of the Dakota Access pipeline. Opponents of the pipeline called this a victory, saying it underscores their calls to relocate the pipeline away from waterways and sacred tribal land. But oil is still pumping through the pipeline. How can the U.S. government balance its energy priorities with environmental concerns and native tribal land rights? And what's the best way forward? Join us to hear from Amy Sisk, a reporter for Inside Energy and Prairie Public Broadcasting in Bismark, North Dakota; Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council; Craig Stevens, spokesman for Grow America's Infrastructure Now (GAIN), a pro-pipeline association; and Kent Blansett, assistant professor of history and Native American studies at University of Nebraska at Omaha. Noel King of NPR's Planet Money guest hosts. Joshua Johnson is back next week.
