It's fracking! Same thing - contaminated waste that can't be reused and is swallowing the water, creating waste that will forever be toxic to the world -- what are we doing to ourselves?

Our government is what is destroying our world--only one thing on their mind and that is money. They are the ones that need to be fracked! Sorely--they don't have enough common sense other than to destroy everything--way things are going it won't be long before 'we-the people' won't be able to support them anymore the way they are draining us of our income due to their greed and stupidity. Bless all who love Mother Earth.

So wrong. The rich will realize their wrong doings, but, I'm afraid, only after all other life is gone. Too late suckers!

Noted w/ thanks, Cal. We were supposed to have figured this out in the 70's when the EPA was created. It was meant to be built on, not destroyed. Lisa Jackson is so at-odds over the KeystoneXL Pipeline that she's quitting. This admin. obviously wants us to, "hold his feet to the fire" before anything positive can be done. Tens of thousands surrounded the White House last spring to protest the Keystone XL Pipeline....some were arrested. Petitions have been signed, phone calls made, e.mails sent....to no avail.
The economy that was devastated continually during the Bush Regime, caused many to seek opportunities for money to pay bills any way they could, which led to much of this new boon to the dirty energy industry. During the same period, old regulations went unheeded and new regs. that should've been on the books were tossed aside in favor of greedy corporations.
This is a fight we must not walk away or back down from....but ramp up. Bill McKibbon's group, 350.org is a great place to join the movement.
