Rain, water, fracking

People ask about the water levels in the lakes and, “When’s it gonna rain?”

The rain is a result of surface water evaporating and then thru the hocus-pocus of nature it returns in the form of rain.

So when you mix the water with chemicals and shoot it 5,000 feet into the earth to make some rich guys even richer there’s not a snowball’s chance that it’ll turn into rain anytime in our lives.

If we’re gonna use our fresh water foolishly, then perhaps we ought to invest in desalinization efforts, and I’m wondering why the “rich guy” can’t pipe in some ocean water and mix chemicals in it and shoot it 5,000 feet into the earth.

Of course then our tap water will taste salty and light up when you apply an ignition source to it and the “rich guy” will still say it ain’t his fault.

Speaking of “faults” he’ll just say the earthquakes are just nature’s way of promoting “rock and roll.”

Use our planet wisely and it will provide for us.

Use it foolishly and it can hurt us.
