To the editor: To Aaron Bady’s excellent article, I would just add that putting a price on carbon would aid the Sioux, and all of us, in fighting for survival.
When a fee is imposed on carbon-burning fuels, the oil and gas industries will be made to bear the costs of environmental damage. When that happens, the building of this 1,172-mile-long crude oil pipeline, as well as other such enterprises, will not be so economically attractive.
