"...Thousands of people rallied together across the globe to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline, the US Army Corps of Engineers issued a statement saying that the decision on the pipeline will be further delayed for more consultation.
Normally, this would be a good thing: delay is often our friend. But, these are not normal times.
