Oil and Water: Conflicts Over the Dakota Access Pipeline

Mike Connelly, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) working in North Dakota in support of the Dakota Access Pipeline, drives past oil tankers being transported by railroad within the Bakken Formation in Glendive, Montana near the North Dakota border in January 2017.

Connelly's support for the Dakota Access Pipeline is based on North Dakota's oil-heavy economy and the pipeline's creation of employment to individuals in the oil business sector who are struggling to find opportunities to sustain their families following the 2015 Bakken oil bust. Connelly's experience as a travel CNA adds to his strong belief in the reduction of road accidents and deaths on North Dakota's dangerous roads if the pipeline is constructed, reducing the number of vehicles transporting oil through the state.
