Giant mining companies are tearing up some of the wildest places on earth to feed our hunger for gold. But do we even need it?

For gold? Does it have any industrial use? Or is it always for adornment?

Between fracking; bitumen shale mining; mining for gold and other metals - there won't be any water left. Then there are firms such as Nestle's who think it's kosher to sell our fresh water to the PRC. Let those countries like the PRC quit over populating and begin by cleaning up their own messes. Water is the next major commodity.

Nope, we don't need it. We should stop digging up the Earth.
