WE MUST STOP NATURAL GAS FRACKING NOW !!!
Inside Earths crust it is all liquid and molten. Natural Gas Companies are breaking Earths solid crust into tiny bits with Hydraulic Fracturing. This fracturing has made 100's of square miles unstable in America alone. Hydraulic fracturing is happening world wide and Gas companies are not stopping, they are increasing the destruction of Earths crust, destabilizing a thin rock crust which is meant to be solid.
Without earths techtonic plates having a solid rock crust over continents, earthquakes and lava flows will erupt in America's heartland and bread basket farm land.
Deepwater Ocean Drilling for oil creates vast empty caverns under millions of tons of water pressure per square inch of the sea floor, threatening collapse once empty of oil, causing a tidal wave larger than the one that swept 15 miles inland of the Japanese coast last year.
Nuclear energy is only "green" in so far as it does not generate carbon dioxide. Nuclear energy is only green in so far as there is not a meltdown or a spill. Every nuclear power plant in america is within 50 miles of a city. Fifty miles is within the "fatal zone" of a nuclear accident. U.S. nuclear power plants are vulnerable to earthquakes, floods, and tidal waves.
Coal is todays most widely used energy source. Coal is the most toxic fuel source of them all and there is no way to make it cleaner than it is, otherwise coal companies would already do it, and not one coal company is.
40% of america's corn crops are used for ethanol, a gasoline additive. Food, after housing is the average americans largest expense. 1/7th of the worlds human population (1 Billion people) go hungry. This use of food for fuel is unethical and it helps to keep us addicted to gasoline and oil.
In less than 150 years humankind has already extracted and used more than what is reasonable of combustable fuels. To continue to do so is genocideof our entire planet.
Wind and Solar Power are not "pipe dreams" as the skeptics are so fond of saying. The skeptics have not yet learned to think critically (think for themselves.) The skeptics have not yet learned to adapt to survive. The skeptics must be converted to champions of green energy. The fate of all of us depends on them.
This is a global issue. Evolution or die includes all of us. This is a necessary environmental change. This is an issue of social change. This requires massive political change. This is our first, last, and best opportunity for a new sustainable global economy.
Ending the consumption of fossil fuels and promoting wind and solar energy sources are "Occupy" goals world wide. It reduces corporate and government greed and corruption, and will help to lead us all into a sustanable future for all.
