LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.
NO MORE drilling, coal mining, FRACKING,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
==========
Leave the OIL IN THE SOIL
Leave the COAL IN THE HOLE
Leave the TAR SANDS IN THE LAND.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP
==============
Corporate Capitalism by its VERY NATURE, has to CONSTANTLY GROW.
Therefore, the Capitalist Corporations WON'T STOP -
they CAN'T STOP -
until they have extracted EVERY LAST RESOURCE THAT'S EXTRACTABLE,
from EVERY LAST SQUARE INCH OF THE EARTH.
And from the Air above and from the Water below.
Therefore, WE HAVE TO PUT AN END TO CORPORATE CAPITALISM, BEFORE IT PUTS AN END TO US. And to all the Animals. THIS IS WHAT IS IN OUR FUTURE if we don't STOP CORPORATE CAPITALISM.

signed. Back in the 70's I bought a brand new house in Kenner, Louisiana when I walked in my back yard, I would sink in the ground. Turns out the house was built over a drainage canal that had been filled in years before! My house and the new house next to it were sliding into each other. Needless to say, the builder gave me a new house further down the street. Talk about sleeze...you would think he would have gotten a history of the property before building! He was still building in the area, backed one of the local politicians.
My situation was obvious...I can imagine the hush hush will happen if fracking is allowed. New Orleans is below sea level...mushy land to start with. Totally stupid to frack there!!!!!WTF!.
