Oil or Water?
Personally, I feel very strongly that, after 1600 K (about a thousand miles)
of being constantly on the lookout for even the smallest source of potable
water, it might be wise to put the rising concerns about running
out of oil in their proper perspective. Do we wish to pursue the path
of endless resource wars, which Cheney, Bush, et al. suggest are a matter
of absolute necessity. Or shall we follow an alternative path, a via natura,
which to me seems so very much more reasonable. This would be a path which
conserves in the deepest sense. It is a path which sees water and watersheds
as sacred. And it is a path which protects and restores the great North American
tallgrass prairie and mountain forests so that the rushing waters will continue
to flow with conviviality and energy into our children's future.
What could be more important than this?
