HEARTBREAKING!
IRREVERSIBLE Damage will be done.
Goes to show ya:

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
the Coal in the Hole
the Tar Sands in the Land.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP
