Article entitled, "Earth’s Annual Resource Allotment Runs Out Today" can be read in EcoWatch here.
Excerpt:

Native Americans Launch ‘Love Water Not Oil’ Ride To Protest Fracking Pipeline

Article describing the ride can be read in EcoWatch here.

Excerpt:

Winona LaDuke, executive director of Native environmental group Honor the Earth, launched the “Love Water Not Oil” horse ride this week to draw attention to the group’s continued opposition to the Enbridge Sandpiper pipeline. It would carry fracked oil from North Dakota’s Bakken shale oil fields through the Sandy Lake and Rice Lake watersheds in northern Minnesota. The area is not only rich in recreational fishing facilities but it is also home to vast fields of wild rice or manoomim, a Native American staple.
