Letter about...Please

To the Editor,

Please...let’s balance the books if we’re going to continue talking about “taking”.

Yes, banning frac sand mining “takes” away a landowner’s right to engage in that specific activity. But, allowing frac sand mining is a de facto determination that land has the same dispensability as a firecracker. It may be saved or destroyed at the sole discretion of its owner. This begs the questions: Is a mandated saving of one’s property from oneself taking or giving? Debit or credit?

Sustainable land use practices benefit the here and now as well as the yet to come, the communities of today as well as the communities of tomorrow, and of course, every species living thereon.

Those who would trade their good earth for frac sand cash would compromise the quality of all of our lives, the futures of all our children, and the life of the land entrusted to their care.

Their “taking” from all that surround them would just keep compounding.

Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
