Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Lead Fight for Energy Independence

July 12, 2016

By Jason Coppola Truthout

Living up to the words of Russell Means, the late Oglala Lakota activist and cofounder of the American Indian Movement, members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota are leading an effort toward energy independence. This effort, if successful, could serve as a model for how to slow anthropogenic climate disruption. Their hope is based on a controversial clean energy technology, which is often discredited as conspiracy as it quietly moves into reality. Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) is being considered by many to be the future of energy.
