Discuss: The Fracking of Rachel Carson
If fracking is allowed to continue we will see a significant rise in cancers of all types as well as other diseases caused by pollution. I have no doubt that the people making loads of money off this practice will receive their proper punishment. Karma is physics, for every action there is an opposite but equal reaction. The Death of the Sea is near and one half of the world’s population depends on protein from the sea as their main source of sustenance. Are these people insane, immoral, or care more about money than their fellow human beings. Probably all of the above, I hope they get exactly what they deserve.
It’s not us and them. It’s all us. We must become better at helping profiteers see the need for a purified and and sustainable planet. They need peace and love to see more clearly.
Beautifully written, moving piece.
Thank you for such a well written, piece, placing this struggle in the greater context of human rights and environmental activism.
I’d like to offer the suggestion, (and request!) to add any and all citations of facts / reports in the article. I have read many of them independent of this article, and find it could only strengthen the cause to keep our data and info strongly entwined with our calls to action.
Thanks again for a lovely piece.
The obsession for money destroys morality. Reason and science count for nothing with those intent on profits. Our world is being poisoned and destroyed for profit.
I’m holding on to hope, Mike. I do what I can locally and I feel our collective intentions to raise the conciousness to a new and clean way to treat one another and sustain our planet is in process. Be patient and work hard!
we fight because there is no other alternative, we cannot lose, there is no other planet to move to, we continue each day because to not fighting is unacceptable. We have already solved the issue facing our very survival and future with solar, wind, geo thermal, and sunflower and hemp can revolutionize farming, re invigorate manufacturing and create jobs nationally. Subsidies that now go to already wealthy polluting oil and gas companies should go to farmers willing to grow our food and fuels which are compatible, clean the air and do not pollute. There are so many fronts to be present….see you on the beaches
Pennsylvania. Important place and part in our early history. Independence Hall a.k.a. Pennsylvania State House is a landmark building. Philadelphia considered the birthplace of USA. The site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the ratification of the Articles of Confederation uniting the 13 colonies in 1781; and adoption of the Constitution outlining the nation’s basic laws in 1787. The Liberty Bell. An important symbol of United States freedom. Cracked once in 1846, repaired. The bell received another crack and hasn’t rung since, only gentle taps in honor of Martin Luther King Day, since 1986. The Liberty Bell crack is deemed a favorite aspect of the bell’s history. The crack. The condition of freedom in PA and the USA.
