Sadly as I drove along noticing the hawks flying, deer in the fields and wide open pastures there was something else in view that was highly disturbing. In Southwest Colorado the Oil and Gas industry has taken over here and in almost every 100 acres you have anywhere between 1 to 3 well sites. They’ve built pipelines, transfer stations and pumps. What was once pristine land is now littered with oil rigs, wells and the negative effects that come with it. Our country is very dependent on oil and it doesn’t have to be. There are methane wastelands here that if you walk into the wrong area will kill you within minutes. The toxins that get into the water supply are equally dangerous.
For those that live in the city and never see these wells or the gases they put off, you don’t really know how it affects nature and those living near the production locations. They are noisy, not to mention toxic and every new well that is drilled changes the energy of the whole place.
I pray that people start waking up to the need for free energy for mankind and nature. If you saw the devastation that our dependency on oil and gas is creating, you would think twice. The birds, insects, animals and man could really do so much better without all this needless drilling. Ocean life has been destroyed, lands have been disturbed and entire water supplies polluted and turned toxic.
Life is a delicate balance and we must respect that. As things in the natural world disappear we really need to take responsibility for our part in it and the role we play in the destruction. We can make a difference but first we must realize what we are doing to create our own extinction.
