The Dakota oil pipe line could be good but at the same time be bad. Here is one reason why it is good. It transfers oil from place to place quicker and better. The bad reason is that when the oil goes through the pipe line it ruins the environment and farmers in Iowa are also worried because, it can ruin there soil and take up their land. Another reason why it is bad is that the oil pipe line run’s through the native american’s property and it will ruin everything, they never even had a chance to agree or disagree.
