Hi Deb. Thank you so much for posting this subject and the link. It is an issue that is of great concern to many. It sadden my heart greatly to see Mother Earth torn apart like that.
It is a subject I will be researching the history of and get some articles out for it.
I admire and appreciate your concern and passion on ecological issues and your passion for protecting the Earth and our animals friends.
Walk in Peace and Harmony.
