With Dakota Access in limbo, more Bakken crude to move on trains

The attempt to stop the pipeline was by people living in a fantasy world where they think they do not need fossil fuels.  But, how many of them got there using fossil fuels?  How many of them use fossil fuels to heat and cool their homes.  Would they rather freeze in the dark?
