65. What will it take to end the madness...

Rant On:

You know the environmental movement was kickstarted in the 1970's when the countries awareness level was raised during the Cayahoga river fire... Rivers burning made for great publicity in favor of environmental issues...... It is way past time that the national consciousness be reawakened to environmental concerns... If images from the Exxon Valdez Oil disaster the BP oil mega disaster and now rivers of oil flooding neighborhoods won't do it, that I don't know what will....

Will it take a great sinkhole collapse, of an entire community thousands dead, where fracking causes such unstable earth that it swallows up whole towns?

Will it take a lake or river exploding from the build up of natural gas polluting the water?

Will it take the Island nation of the Maldives to disappear forever into the ocean because of sea level rise due to ice cap melt? Or a mega Hurricane produced from the overheated earth?

Sadly the earth has been warning us for quite sometime that something is about to give....but you know now that I am on this tangent, what really irks me is the fact that so called conservatives at least those in the middleclass, should be natural supporters of environmental issues, they clamour on about the debt and leaving a nation of debt to our children and theirs but what about the earth leaving a dead or dying planet seems like it should trump the debt IMHO....

ENOUGH!...

Rant Off...
