Nothing like going backwards. They could have put in a wind station.

How stupid of Nova Scotia; they will learn the hard way and their marine life will suffer.

Being an English co, it's not surprising(though disheartening) that Canada would give them drilling rights.

Everywhere these companies go; ruin and disaster is sure to follow. Did Nova Scotia learn anything from the contamination of its aquifers and drinking water due to leaky tanks at service stations? Weren't enough people made seriously ill due to this contamination. It took years of fighting and government stalling before they finally admitted it. I don't remember if restitution was ever made. If it wasn't then that is another crime.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb
The price of anything is the amount of life exchanged for it.
It seems Corporate planetcide will be allowed as long as enough money is moving among the OnePercenters
