Spring Flooding Predicted To Be Greater Than Normal In North Dakota

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, North Dakota faces a risk of major flooding this spring as warmer than average temperatures are forecasted for the Northern Plains.

Tom Graziano, Ph.D., director of NOAA’s Office of Water Prediction said, “snowpack is heavy in the West and northern plains, and if our long term warm-up coincides with spring rains, already saturated soils will not be able to absorb the increased water, which would lead to increased runoff and potential flooding.”

This comes on the heels of local predictions of earlier than average spring floods on the Missouri River where protest camps were recently evacuated and cleaned up – 835 dumpsters were removed at a cost of $1.1 million to taxpayers.…

Since when does the U.N. dictate American energy policy?

Despite all the turmoil happening across the globe, the United Nations is apparently now turning its focus to U.S. domestic energy policy.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad seems to have little patience left for the anti-pipeline protesters who have wreaked havoc in North Dakota for the past eight months.

Erin Mundahl | InsideSources

From the beginning, the activists protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline resisted police presence. For months they claimed–often very loudly–that they were a “peaceful and prayerful” movement being subjected to police brutality. They complained about crowd control tactics, the use of riot shields, and tear gas. Finally, in late November, a group of protesters filed a lawsuit against Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, alleging that the department used excessive force during a confrontation with protesters on Backwater Bridge.…
