HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF THIS WAS YOUR HOME?!?!
YOUR HOMETOWN'S RIVER!?!?!
How many of you know about the coal slurry disaster in Tennessee that occurred in December? Probably only a few, because the mainstream media did not report on this disaster that was many times as destructive as the Exxon Valdez disaster.
What about the nuclear wastewater spill that occurred in the Sea of Japan as a result of an earthquake that ruptured the holding facilities at the world's largest nuclear reactor? The media gave this one a bit of coverage, but downplayed the effects.
There is no sense in continuing to mine and drill for "resources" that keep the lights on whilst we are slowly poisoning ourselves and our environment. And you cannot trust the media to inform you of these events, as they are in the pocket of various corporation's interest (I do not use the term "corporate interest" as this implies "everyone's interest," when in fact it is only wealthy executives who really gain from so called "corporate interests" in this guise--words spun spin your head, if you are not aware).
There are viable alternatives, such as wind, solar, conscientious use of hydro-power, etc. We must demand the swift transition to these environmentally friendly modes NOW!!!! WE MUST TAKE ACTION before we irrevocably destroy our future, and the future of our children and life on earth generally.
