Yes, there is.
And sadly enough, I am cursed with THS (Tree Hugger Syndrome). I was raised to be environmentally very conscientious and as unintrusive or abusive to
our environment as possible.
I am repulsed by floating plastic-bottle-islands. And I am gobsmacked that people don't seem to think it's a big deal.
THEY DON'T THINK THINGS THROUGH.
So - yes.
I understand that there has to be a transition period. But, we must focus on a long-term goal of making OBSOLETE all "fossil-fuel extraction methods"
that turn out to cause toxic, dead, unsafe, unsteady surface conditions --- we have to LIVE WITH THE RESULTS.
If "fracking" is causing earthquakes, or mining is causing mesothelioma, or Flint's public water is poisoning its residents with lead -------
and WE KNOW ABOUT IT --- then we need to damn well right now cease and desist.
