  1. Funny how they can name themselves just about anything. I’ve seen groups called “Healthy Forest, Healthy Communities support this legislation (S 1966). Confusion is a great tool. https://online.nwf.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1959. Munch, munch, munch until its all gone. No one seems particularly concerned Lake Meade is at such a low level,etc. I’m amazed at how many people do not know what fracking is, how much water it drains and what the polluted result is. Etc. I’m super watchful and it’s all too much for me to keep up with sometimes.

    • Part of the problem and probably the strategy as well – overwhelming people
      until they retreat into a personal isolationism.
      Funny that politicians who rebut a national isolationism as in putting American
      products and jobs first as being detrimental nonetheless fuel this individual
      isolationism when it comes to things like the Occupy movements and environmental
      groups.
      They may pay some lip service to the environment but by and large are in the corporate
      hip pocket.
      Lake Meade as well as the headlong retreat of glaciers in Glacier Park are both physically
      and visually accessible to the public as opposed to the Polar caps – miner’s canaries
      people need to take seriously.
      The political/corporate approach is to always kick the can a little further down the road,
      something the public needs to push back against.
      Good link – thanks.
