Water & Oil

Why is it that the appalling BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has moved us to horrified concern while an ongoing environmental catastrophe of equal consequence, happening in our own back yard, fails to inspire similarly charged emotions and contemplation of our actions as a species?

The Alberta Tar Sands are one gigantic slow motion oil spill, the MOST destructive project on Earth. It seems that because this deliberately perpetrated disaster (which is fuelling the US and Asia while causing cancer and death in Canada) is not a dramatic accident, we allow it to continue almost unnoticed.

Let’s connect the dots.

What kind of culture are we that we numbly observe this organized destruction?
How have our values and intelligence become so degraded that we do not recognize and reverse the unnecessary consequences of this behaviour and the power brokers that mastermind it?
What will it take to prompt us to step up to our role as CREATORS of a healthy and happy world?
