The example of jobs with good wages and resulting prosperity in western ND is a model for improving the economy in the entire country. The USGS found the oil, big money went after it but it is the higher wages that ultimately drive the economy. The development is also an example of greed and how too many involved show little respect for the environment and those of us not in oil. I rate Alaska, Yellowstone NP and the ND Badlands in that order of places 1 should see in their travels. 4 nearly fifty years i went to the badlands about 5 times a year--but not anymore. The safe drive there, the quiet and pristine beauty are destroyed as every new well is drilled. Call me a naysayer for concern about this reckless development if you must. Our state politicians who allowed this to happen with too little oversight and concern 4 preserving the pristine badlands will not be called "statesmen" in history books.
