ically, the grading and clearing of land-
will cause irreparable injury to historic or
cultural properties of great significance."
The opinion considers the law's myriad
survey and consultation requirements and
details regulators' compliance with them
all. "In summary, the Corps has documented dozens of attempts it made to
consult with the Standing Rock Sioux
from the fall of 2014 through the spring
of 2016," Boasberg writes. "These included
at least three site visits to the Lake Oahe
crossing to assess any potential effects
on historic properties and four meetings."
An editorial in the Grand Forks, N.D.,
Herald addresses the matter: "Tribal officials say the pipeline will cross sacred
ground. But no one raised that claim
back in the 1980s, when the route was
dug up for an earlier pipeline. No one
raised it in the years since then, either.
"Moreover," the op-ed continues, "no
one has presented any evidence in support
of that claim at all. To the contrary, the
evidence that has been presented contradicts the claim. Notably, it comes from
professional archaeologists, who have
walked the route a number of times and
not found artifacts or human remains."
Boasberg's ruling points to evidence
indicating that the pipeline company finalized its route only after NHPA due
diligence was complete, deliberately shifting the route during the planning phase
to avoid culturally significant sites.

continue to take place in virtually every
sector of the economy if we are able to
take advantage of our abundant, inexpensive energy supplies."
The analysis also found that other sectors would have realized very few new
jobs and very little growth throughout a
scenario with no energy renaissance. In
other words, the chamber says, the United
States has experienced job growth and
economic expansion since 2009 largely
thanks to a massive expansion in U.S. oil
and gas production.
The Energy Institute report examines
the oil and gas value chain impact, as well
as the economic effect that lower energy
prices have spurred. The report breaks
down benefits for both the residential and
industrial sectors, and provides an in-depth
examination of the job sources. The Energy
Institute's report utilizes publically available
data on jobs and production levels, and
the IMPLAN macro-economic model.

Ultimately, the Herald editorial suggests,
claims about desecrating sacred ground
undermine DAPL opponents' case. It states,
"The claims being made by people trying
to block DAPL's construction are based
more on pretense than in fact. That ruins
the protestors' credibility, and makes it
very unlikely they will gain majority support
from the voters they need to convince."
Meticulously Vetted
As for claims that DAPL poses an
acute environmental threat, Association
of Oil Pipelines President and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Black told the
North Dakota Petroleum Council that a
proposed alternative route that crossed
the Missouri River near Bismark, N.D.,
would disturb more flood plains, wetlands,
water bodies, and agricultural lands. Moreover, the Corps' NEPA review predicted
no significant environmental impacts and
determined an operating DAPL would be
safer and better for the environment than
the status quo (see related story, pg. 98).
In an Oct. 26 letter in which he criticizes
five unions who oppose DAPL, Laborers
International Union of North America
General President Terry O'Sullivan charges
that keep-it-in-the-ground activists are
taking advantage of Native Americans.
"The groups behind the anti-pipeline
movement are exploiting tribal concerns
in an effort to mobilize public opinion
against pipeline projects that have nothing
to do with tribal concerns," O'Sullivan
asserts. "DAPL does not run through sacred burial sites or across any part of the
Standing Rock Reservation, and it does
not pose a threat to the Missouri River.

Opponents want the public to believe
these issues were not considered over
the two-year review process. But this is
not some half-baked project. It is an allunion-built pipeline that was meticulously
reviewed and vetted."
After arrests were made in four states
following the criminal disruption of oil
pipelines on Oct. 11, the Montana Petroleum
Association condemned such acts as sabotage. It noted that trespassers used bolt
cutters to remove chains and then tampered
with five border-crossing valves on pipelines
that collectively moved 2.8 million bbl/d
of crude from Canada to the United States.
"As unlawful and dangerous criminal
activity continues to spread throughout
the country, federal law enforcement must
act quickly and decisively to prosecute
these domestic acts of terrorism to the
fullest extent of the law," urged MPA
Executive Director Alan Olson.
Consumer Energy Alliance President
David Holt also calls attention to the potential
for harm from such actions. "The steps
taken by these individuals to sabotage
pipelines-in addition to the threats, intimidation and cyber-bullying tactics they are
using-clearly show that their agenda has
nothing to do with protecting the environment
and everything to do with shutting down
the American economy and hurting everyday
Americans, families, small business, and
our economic way of life," he charges.
"American families-especially those living
on fixed incomes, or those at or near the
poverty level-are the ones who will be especially harmed by electricity and fuel
price increases caused by irresponsible
efforts to shut down pipelines."
