Start with the greenies.
The anti-fracking crowd. The oil came from ND Brakken oil shale field— it was from fracking. If this is green terrorism they weren’t concerned about the “environmental” impact on a town like they seem to be about the ground water.
But then, back in the day (and still) these nasty people put spikes into trees to injure/kill loggers. So the forest can be “preserved” for... no one.
