February 9, 2019. Major oil companies employ fracking. This destroys aquifers. Oil will not last forever. Aquifers last, maybe not forever but quite a long time. Our country will survive without oil but not without water. Every metropolitan area in the country needs water, and needs more with every increase of population. This is the United States, we do not have private property. If you don’t believe that try not paying property taxes for a while. If someone destroys a resource they should pay for it. Not a token payment but a replacement payment in perpetuity.
Brittish Petroleum is responsible for the leak in the gulf a few years ago. Number one, from what I’ve read, it is still leaking, number two, they have not made more than token payments to anybody in the gulf. They should be pouring out billions every year,but not only do they not, but we subsidize them.
I realize that this country is set up for the benefit of the rich and to hell with the rest of us, but this is ridiculous.
This is the kind of thing that sets off mobs with torches. Congresspeople, keep an eye on the roads.
