Thank you! Thank you! Maybe someone is beginning to listen to common sense. We only have one planet-lets protect our environment as much as we can.

It's just one court and the greedy rich oil ,gas and mining interests will spend spend spend to overturn any rule that limits their potential for profit. So don't get your hopes up !
