Footprints in the Windsm # 1065

This gusher in the Gulf of Mexico is a good thing for the human race. It is showing us how we can foul our own nest. It is getting us thinking and conversing about what we should and should not be doing. It might even get us talking about our addiction to oil as a root cause—an addiction that like all addictions can make us inhuman, inhumane, and harmful to all around us.

The risk is that when we get past the emergency stage we just go back to our old ways, thinking that our magic technology has saved us again. The damage we are doing seems to be growing. Exxon Valdez and now this. Small nuclear accidents and then Chernobyl. We are getting better at technology and so our ability to create bigger and bigger harm to each other and our home grows by the day. We must talk each other into right ways.

Please pass it on.
