Yesterday, I learned about Mr. Bush‘s new plan for commercial oil shale production. At first, I got mad, and went into another rant about our idiotic president. Then thought about the Pope’s discourse to the young Australian people:
“Reluctantly we come to acknowledge that there are also scars which mark the surface of our earth, erosion, deforestation, the squandering of the world’s mineral and ocean resources in order to fuel an insatiable consumption.“
The Holy Father’s got it right, this time. We are insatiable. And will have no rest until we have left no corner of the Earth unturned.
