I feel passionately about the dangers to our water, health and the environment and the process of “fracking” embodies all that is bad about coal seam gas exploration and exploitation. When the government is talking about doing this in the suburbs of Sydney as well as in beautiful pristine areas and wine and holiday areas as well as taking over farms, I think we all need to stand up and be counted.
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
~ Ancient Indian Proverb ~
Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
~ Chief Seattle, 1854 ~
When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
~ Cree Prophecy ~
