Up in Flames

Sometimes now bursts of flame pierce the night views in along the edges of the Great Plains, making flat, rural, even remote  landscapes look a bit like scenes from Blade Runner. While Blade Runner‘s one of my favorite movies, I hoped I wouldn’t have to live in such a dystopian landscape.

I suppose the good news in this article is that others have noticed the waste inherent in fracking: “Wyoming Companies Flared $11M Worth of Natural Gas through Most of 2014.”

The bad news, of course, damage and waste continue.

The irony of most oil and gas men being “conservatives” is not lost on me. Conserve what?
