In case any of us forgot, North Dakota is a state and a lot has been happening there since they started drilling for massive amounts of oil.

On his show, John Oliver likes to tackle controversial issues, break them down for you and then explain exactly how fucked up the situation is. So when the segment he did last night was simply titled “North Dakota”, you weren’t wrong to tilt your head and be like “wha??”

But alas, once again,we must take our seats in the Last Week Tonight classroom and learn from this wacky British prof. Turns out North Dakota’s oil boom, while employing loads of people and lessening our foreign oil dependency has also been the source of mad problems.

Check out last night’s segment about the lack of accountability and regulations occurring in the upper Dakota oil fields.
