It’s the water. We need it to live. We really shouldn’t be mixing it with oil or natural gas or methane. Ultimately the upstream solution is to totally disconnect ourselves from fossil fuels which are the real ‘alternative energies’. el Sol is the only true energy source for Gaia.
So I went to a protest in downtown SF… the second one in 5 years (occupy was earlier). There were 2,000+ there – and mostly young-uns! wow – that is so cool. I do hope this stuff about skipping generations is true, cuz the GenXers sure never woke up to protest our endless wars in the Middle East.
This protest ‘theme’ has my full attention and passion. Not only is it VERY specific (about water) and proposes specific solutions (no pipelines close to rivers & aquifers, but it is ALSO about not infringing on the sovereign rights of indigenous people – the ones we did a genocide on which we still have not dealt with! So Standing Rock and all it’s supporters around the world … ROCK ON. (note: this is only the second of many, many pipeline protests to come… the first big-un was the Keystone Excel, this is gettin’ legs, babeee!)
So here I is….
