Man…..this world is a big and exciting place.
This is a video about the need for wild places and ….rivers.
We consume and because of that consumption, rivers are damned to supply the power to feed the things that we consume.
I guess that if you can place the dam in a location where there isn’t a huge population it makes sense, too.
Who wants to look at a dam all the time?
Why not stick it where there aren’t a lot of people?
The wild places are the only places where there aren’t a lot of people.
(I just realized that I typed “rivers are damned”. Is the correct way to spell it “dammed”? Must have been a slip of some kind….but maybe “damned” is closer to right….)
Now, of course, these folks are paddling around in giant chunks of plastic.
Plastic’s perfect for a boat….but plastic is kind of nasty stuff if you think too much about it.
We’re selective about our environmentalism.
What we need is OK, usually.
You can’t back up from some of these decisions…..like the ones to dam up a river.
Maybe we need to get our monkey wrenches out?
