North Dakotans have strong opinions. That’s why at Black Gold Boom, we’re encouraging reader feedback on the biggest story of our time.
Do you love the boom? Or do you hate the boom? Or is it a little of both?
Tell us your thoughts and personal experiences on the Your Voice of Black Gold Boom. A recent comment in the Love section: “I think we must listen up and although I do not know what we should hear, can we really love or hate this change? Or are we called to embrace it somehow without understanding it necessarily?”
And a recent comment in the Hate section: “The boom is making North Dakota famous for all the wrong reasons: greed, moral compromise for work, environmental abuse, and corrupt politicians. These are the things which North Dakota had many times avoided because they didn’t have anything for the most powerful and the most greedy to exploit.”
