Whoa! Talk about a loud alarm clock!
A toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie makes the water in Toledo, Ohio undrinkable, untouchable, unusable.
The dam holding back a huge tailings pond in central B.C. breaks, turning beautiful streams and rivers into poisonous run-off channels.
Water is a basic building block of life. There is no substitute.
And here in the Yukon, we have a corporation and a government that want to move ahead with an LNG plant, guaranteeing that precious water somewhere here in Canada will be purposely poisoned to be used for fracking, thereby removing millions of litres from our fragile life-support system.
In the case of energy sources, there are substitutes. There’s hydro, wind and solar power which, when fed into a smart grid, go a long way towards getting us off our dirty power dependency.
Hey guys, did you hear the alarm clock? I’d hate for the volume to be turned up any louder, because that would mean more dead fish, dead wildlife and desperate people.
Open your ears. Get your hearing checked.
