MOORHEAD, Minn. -- Plans for a new oil pipeline across northern Minnesota are bringing increased scrutiny to Enbridge, the company that wants to build it.
The Canadian-based company has more than 1,800 miles of pipeline in the state.

Wondrous, bullshit news from the sponsor of the Cohasset MN and Kalamazoo oil spills (not to mention hundreds of others). Reminds me of Custer, who was originally assigned to protect Black Hills gold from prospectors, but turned around and protected the prospectors from Lakota earth protectors.
BURNABY, B.C. - A small group of protesters has linked arms and is chanting "Stop Kinder Morgan" as Mounties move in to end the months-long demonstration against the pipeline expansion.Media are reporting that some people have been arrested...
IN NEWS THAT WILL DISPLEASE AMERICAN INDIANS, THREE MEMBERS OF THE U.S. COMMITTEE ON INDIAN AFFAIRS: CHAIRMAN JON TESTER OF MONTANA; HEIDI HEITKAMP OF NORTH DAKOTA; AND OUT-GOING SENATOR MARK BEGICH OF ALASKA, WHO WAS DEFEATED ON NOVEMBER 5, 2014.
The problem is that the bill will be back in January, and the congress we're dealing with right now is very different from the one we'll see ushered into office at the beginning of 2015.
Just because the lame-duck Congress voted against the bill (barely) with its Democratic Party majority does not mean that the Republicans will have any problem sweeping it through when they take the majority.
The Democratic Party's vote does give Obama a mandate to veto the bill next year if and when it goes through, but the question remains as to whether or not he will use it.
In short, the Big Fail and ensuing celebrations from the Environmental NGOs looks suspiciously like a setup. It's definitely not time to demobilize.
An Australian-led mining company owned by an offshore corporation and five of its top officials and employees conspired to dump waste from a platinum mine into a Southwest Alaska salmon river, a federal indictment handed up Tuesday alleges.
The story was fundamentally flawed and based on a faulty premise — that a silly gesture made by the mayor in a candid photo amounted to a gang sign. The SPJ code of ethics urges all journalists to never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information. This story did just that.
Although KSTP is able to attribute the accusations to identified police sources, in airing the story KSTP failed to exercise its journalistic duty to ensure that the stories it airs are worth telling. Instead, KSTP allowed itself to be used by one political group to make points against its political opponent.
WASHINGTON –- TransCanada Corp., the company seeking to build the Keystone XL pipeline, has teamed up with the world's largest public relations firm to promote a proposed alternative pipeline that's entirely in Canada.
Decades of strip mining have left this town in the heart of India’s coal fields a fiery moonscape, with mountains of black slag, sulfurous air and sickened residents.
But rather than reclaim these hills or rethink their exploitation, the government is digging deeper in a coal rush that could push the world into irreversible climate change and make India’s cities, already among the world’s most polluted, even more unlivable, scientists say.
The young people were 'normalistas', that is they attended a so-called Escuela Normal, schools which were set up to train young people from small farming families to become teachers and to help to emancipate their communities from oppression and poverty. They have a long tradition of fighting for democratic education and of training new young teachers to work with their communities. More recently they have been in the forefront of the struggle against the kind of reforms which see education as a purely economic process, to produce 'human capital' for corporations.
Josh Little Bear doesn't exist. It's not just a pseudonym to protect a child. The story is a fabrication, a compiling of events that may or may not have happened to paint a broad picture that Native American leaders say does not exist.
WASHINGTON — Minnesota's senators were both "no" votes as a proposal to build the Keystone XL pipeline went down by a single vote
Robert DesJarlait's insight:
Some give and take by Franken and Klobuchar. They may have opposed the Black Snake, however, they support sulfide-ore mining in Minnesota. This is no time to loosen your scalplock; rather, it's time to tighten it up. Hoka.
Anonymous has revealed a list of KKK members in light of the Ferguson protests as part of #OpKKK and a cyberwar against the organization. The ‘de-hooding’ of Ku Klux Klan members has spurred threats and attacks against Anonymous over social media, with @KuKluxKlanUSA stating “You …
