That worm, if it could reason, would probably think it is pretty safe down there in the hot rocks. But, man in his thirst for gold for pretty bracelets has invaded its biosphere. It is not enough that we are screwing our water and air up I guess. That worm down there might be living on borrowed time.
Gila Wilderness New Mexico
Up here on the surface our political leaders are ruining our own biosphere in pandering the the extractive industries. Oil, Gas, Coal, and now resurgent uranium again are running politics. The Obama administration's move yesterday to deny decent protection for new wilderness denotes that they do not think that leaving 2% of American public lands in a natural and unfettered state is a good thing. They are nothing but tools.
