The environment is in the news recently. Several letter writers have referred to oil transport, a call to protect our forests. Elsewhere I read the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is preparing to make available permits authorizing the wind industry to kill bald or golden eagles without prosecution (for 30 years).
No matter how you look at it, the industrial world doesn’t give a hoot about protecting or saving the environment. Leave it to big oil, the timber or mining industry; they would eagerly strip the planet, on the surface or under it — and call it creating jobs.
In addition, climate change is bringing about an intolerable existence, i.e. extermination, for many species. Man will surely follow in an uncertain future.
