Environmental hypocrites who were protesting against the Dakota Access oil pipeline, burned oil to keep themselves warm! They also left enough litter to fill more than 250 garbage trucks!

Fox News writes of this: (the bolding is mine)
What was once a bustling makeshift city is now a largely abandoned garbage pit. Teepees and yurts, thousands of sheets of plywood and tents, kerosene and propane stoves, diesel and gasoline generators, food, clothing, cars and mountains of human waste lie in what was once a pristine floodplain that abutted the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
Nothing but bison and horses roamed here. Unless the debris is moved, state officials say it will wash into and contaminate the Missouri River.
Already 250 loads of trash have been removed, but much more remains. And police say they need to get everyone out to finish the job.
This suggests to me that the real reason for their protest has nothing to do with protecting the environment.
I think this fake environment protest is all about the egos of the protestors, and has nothing to do with actually protecting the environment.
I think the real reason for their protest is so they can smugly pat each other on the back, and falsely claim that they “protected” the environment.
Actions speak louder than words. And their actions show that they don’t give a darn about the environment that they claim to be “protecting.”
