Frac sand mining...


Fri, Feb 14th, 2014
Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I wish to express my deep admiration for the Catholic Workers who went on trial for protesting frac sand mining in Winona. Their testimony in the courtroom and the way they live their lives are true inspirations. The owners of the protested facilities and the arresting officers all testified that the protesters were non-violent and deeply respectful.

What I would like the community to think about is this: Why is it that the corporations in this country can use the law to keep the people out of their property, but the people can’t use the law to keep the corporations out of our property, namely the air we inhale or the water we drink?

Why is it the corporations can shut down our operations forever--like our ability to breathe, or to protect our fragile karst aquifers and to nurture a tourism industry based on beautiful vistas and tranquility, but we can’t shut down their operations for an hour in peaceful protest?

The people are made to pay the true costs of every aspect of our failed fossil fuel industry: silicosis, contaminated rivers, leaking and exploding oil tankers, leaking and exploding pipelines, depleted ground water, unsafe roads, ruined home values, democracy sold to the highest bidder, and a planet fouled and plundered for future generations.

Make no mistake, it is a failed industry. If you leave a wake of destruction to deliver your product that can not be the definition of success.

Let this country get off of fossil fuels. Let’s treat this problem like the emergency it is. With a World War II level mobilization we can do this now. We are all responsible.
