But we're all not only in this boat together but we collectively as a
culture that is rapidly becoming global totally addicted to energy
consumption.

We can't ignore our own culpablity at every level. There is no us and
them any more - if there ever was.

One of the parts I'm doing is to join the Izaak Walton League and be
trained to test the waters in head water streams for source point
pollution. And to report it and do follw up to make sure the polluters
are identified. What the marcellus gas industry was allowed to do
legally and sometimes illegally in Colorado only went under the radar
because of population scarcity and political pressure that industry
can put on the government.

Here on the east coast, any move they make has the potential to be a
deadly blight on whole water sheds that feed millions.

They've been working in isolated pockets of PA an WV but the people
are becoming savvy to their actions and not giving out information on
thier part is no longer possible. The information is out there about
the dangers. Every misstep on industry's part is toxic. They have the
technology to be clean. But it's cheaper to cut corners.

You can't cut corners when it comes to the air we breathe and the
water that sustains us.

This is the battle to produce clean energy that it's worth putting
activist energy into.

People can't make a difference individually the way they can
collectively but it takes individuals choosing to do something to make
it happen.
