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? What’s the best way forward?
