Kent: South Dakota home to environmental disaster

South Dakota's economy is a sinkhole of disease, pollution, despair, and hopelessness.
The contamination of groundwater by uranium and its impacts is a calamity known all too well by the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation. They’ve been fighting the issue for years and, primarily, on their own. For first-hand accounts, feel free to visit the Rez. Then, of course, there’s the ongoing Keystone XL pipeline issue -- which will not only bring massive job creation to South Dakota and the country, but secure America’s energy future, generate tax revenue and cure the common cold.--Jim Kent, posted in the Rapid City Journal.
