I am so disheartened. I thought maybe if I ignored everything bad, it'd all go away. But, this is not the case. I cannot forget. A long time ago, back
in early 2011, I started looking at Google Earth to find fracking pads in Arkansas. I was locating epicenters of earthquakes in relation to the 'new'
drilling sites. Now these areas are familiar to me. Back then, I hadn't a clue. But I was sure of one thing. I knew there was a correlation which
forced me to conclude that there was causation. Fracking caused earthquakes. And in particular, injection wells caused the biggest ones.
Near Greenbrier, close to Damascus, there is some new earthquakes. I couldn't resist. I had to look at the maps. I wish I didn't. They've updated the
maps. I could clearly see that google had updated the world. And frack. Oh, I want to swear. I want to be a sailor and sail a blue streak. The change
is alarming. There are so many frack pads that it isn't hard to find them at all. But, what's more disturbing is that you see that they are in full
Gray stone frack pads.
Just to prove that I am right, I will use the words of someone I disagree with to make my point. I always shutter when I hear Margret Thatcher's
voice. But when I heard her say in 1989 that,
"Mr President, it gives me great pleasure to return to the Podium of this assembly. When I last spoke here four years ago, on the 40th anniversary of
the United Nations, the message that I and others like me gave was one of encouragement to the organisation to play the great role allotted to it.
Of all the challenges faced by the world community in those four years, one has grown clearer than any other in both urgency and importance—I refer
to the threat to our global environment. I shall take the opportunity of addressing the general assembly to speak on that subject alone. "
As I've said, I would, if I could, oppose everything the women said, but I can't. She is right. The threat is against our environment. So, if the
polar extremes are in union and content to agree not to disagree, then is must be said to be true. Damn the global warming debate for the moment.
Let's just look at the environment. And when we do...
it's a sad state
