  1. These are the same idiots who want green energy and save the earth! Just a bunch of slobs which they are, can’t clean up after themselves. The worst one was up in North Dakota where they left tons of trash for the state to clean up. Lefty pigs who leave the earth dirty! It’s not the oil companies leaving trash behind.

  2. Everywhere they go they leave a mess. Their encampment south of Naytahwaush, at the intersection of County Road #4 and State Hwy 113 was the same. Garbage, old vehicles with engine oil and transmission fluid coming off of them, no sanitation, old campers left behind. But hey, they are protecting our water! No one else can abuse public property like that.
