300 earthquakes and no drinkable water for 300,000 people.

That is what the energy and chemical industries are doing to our planet and doing to us. I guess we should say thank you sirs may we have another, since we know more is coming. There will be more poisoned water, more earthquakes, more destruction of wildlife, more spills, all for…what exactly? And for whom?

Even the democratic party has embraced fracking for the sake of being elected.

At this rate all of America will become Frackishima. I sure hope I get to turn into the Toxic Avenger rather than just die from tumors and cancers thanks to all the contaminated fresh water. Fingers crossed…

The largest state in the continental United States is getting 1/3 of its electricity from wind farms.

That is encouraging. It is hard to find encouraging stories in the environmental, climate change, clean energy field(s) these days. It’s not that the stories, facts, and events don’t exist. It’s that there is so much more bad news out there.

The fact that one of, if not THE most conservative, republican state in the country is also the biggest clean energy success story says something. The fact that the state where George W. Bush was a two term governor before he was a two term president is getting that much power from clean energy says a lot.

What does it say? That there IS hope.

Hope springs eternal…and so does renewable energy. That’s why it’s renewable.

If Texas can get behind clean energy in such a resounding way then any state can, outside of the confederacy at least.
