They Want to “Stop & Go” Again on Fuel Sources…

My first words would come out as “BE VERY FREAKIN’ AWARE of these fuckmooks and what the Future may hold.

Here is a good article from Today’s L.A. Times. It concerns Big Oil & Gas wanting to open our country to the results of their “exploration/development” schemes for oil shale.  From using all of some States allocations of Colorado River water to the poisoning of lesser aquifers to require communities to engage in massive purification processes… the People don’t win, only the Fat Cats (some who have received a portion of the $700B bailout from the Feds) will win.

So for the folks on the West side of the Rockies, my advice would to be to learn about what Big O&G did to the Louisiana Coast in their repacious search for oil and gas  (= $$$)  and what has has been the results of their activities. Our wetlands (i.e. storm protections) are greatly diminished. Our Natural world has been altered. The things that for us were a given are washing away all for greed.

For the West Rockies folks, you’re not going to wash away since you are going to be shattered by dehydration. The oil shale concerns have many plans, but it involves many acre feet of water every minute to operate the procurment and refinery processes.  Your landscapes will be altered by strip mining. Wells may dry up or have a mineral report that has massive amounts of Selenium/Arsenic/heavy metals or Uranium. (I know much of this area well having hiked it and done my reading.) This will happen.

Never trust the Oil & Gas companies when it comes to extraction- they will extract the minerals and all, and they will also extract the joy of the living in your own land.

Just beware.


  1. We’re very aware and we’re very scared. Luckily we have a Governator who is going to slap some Whoop-Ass on Bushie for this. But that doesn’t mean we can be less vigilant. Keep rabble rousing! It keeps everyone on their toes.

  2. Will do Darlin’. I pay attention to things that can radically, in a very bad way, change all of our lives and realities.

    The West holds many great memories. I’ve hiked in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Colorado. I’ve also seen things such as the failed oil shale operation in Wyoming. I’ve also seen strip-mining set-ups where giant machines literally ate the mountains away.

    These creatures will stop at nothing to get what they desire. It takes eternal vigilance to protect from these life-suckers. Not always easy.
