A Hierarchy of Resources

One of these days the natural gas is going to run out too.  You know what we'll still need at that point?... Water.  Here's a great article from Ivona Vujica on what a lot of different states are doing to protect their water from potentially harmful drilling operations. 

We have a luxury to choose among different sources of energy. But we only have one water. Clean and accessible water should be the stick against which to measure appropriate sources of energy. Everywhere natural gas goes, people are up in arms to protect water from it. In Sacred Headwaters region of north west British Columbia, New York, Nevada, New Mexico, Arctic Chukchi Sea, and in Ontario’s Northern York Region, west of Toronto and in central Toronto, proposed natural gas operations sit on major watersheds and waterways.

In addition to climate chaos, loss of local water supplies is a major issue raised in the fight against natural gas.
