One of the sad­dest ear­ly pro­gres­sive loss­es in the first month of Trump’s pres­i­den­cy was any hope that the protests at Standing Rock would be effec­tive at stop­ping the con­struc­tion of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The fires that are break­ing out as pro­test­ers are forced to leave the area are almost a too-per­fect sym­bol of what is hap­pen­ing in North Dakota, as the hopes of pre­serv­ing these envi­ron­men­tal­ly sen­si­tive and trib­al­ly sig­nif­i­cant lands do, sad­ly, appear to be going up in flames.
