Now that we have just about sucked up all the oil reserves in less than a hundred years our esteemed energy gangsters are now turning their attention to fracking and making sure they have all the ‘movers and shakers’ who allow for such decisions to allow it to happen.
It’s strange that while I write this the term fracking doesn’t appear in the spell check it is that new, but it already seems so widespread throughout the world yet i don’t believe that we are not yet up to speed on the utter devastation this could cause for future generations.
We live in a world teetering on the edge, freak weather, flooding, polar icecaps melting at a alarming rate and intensive farming attempting to cope with population explosion yet it seems we are determined to compound all this with playing Russian roulette with our last fundamental resource – OUR water supply.
Some form of Renewable energy has to be the future if we are to survive and we cannot keep passing on the problem to future generations. We have to act immediately and massive investment needs to resourced to develop new forms of energy, our existence should not be placed in the hands of individuals whose only interest is short term profit enable them to live a life of opulence.
As oil disappears in a hundred years we cannot afford the same to happen to our water whereby we will be left with having to de-salinate the oceans just to survive. Imagine that all brought about by greed, maybe by then we may have mastered space travel allowing the rich and connected to go off to colonise and exploit another world whilst leaving the rest of us to combat the hell they left behind?
