New Madrid Fault Line & Mississippi Flooding

Awhile back, I posted several times re the New Madrid Fault line because I found it interesting as a geological-seismic-historical event. Then later, I posted a bit re the New Madrid Fault line and the current nuclear reactors in close proximity….wondering about the wisdom, given the events in Japan.

But, in a more grandiose vision, some have a different take on all this in light of recent flooding of the Mississippi River:

“The “once in 500 year” flooding of the Mississippi river over the New Madrid fault line is part of a campaign directed against the American people, according to multiple intelligence agency (MI6, CIA, FSB, Japan Security police) sources. The HAARP caused flooding is expected to be followed by an earthquake and then a “nuclear emergency” involving the 15 nuclear reactors located in the region. This will be a pretext for mass evacuations into FEMA camps, the sources say. The best way to derail this plan, apart from arresting the criminal cabal in Washington D.C., is to widely announce and denounce these plans in advance.”

Extraction Mining and Watersheds (Is It Inherently Wrong?)

Extraction Mining

“El film es un viaje alrededor de algunas de las explotaciones a cielo abierto con cianuro que las corporaciones han instalado en el noroeste argentino –San Juan, La Rioja, Catamarca, Tucumán Salta – y la reacción de las poblaciones aledañas frente a la contaminación. Se trata de una obra coral contada por sus protagonistas: ingenieros, maestros, chacareros, indígenas, vecinos, ambientalistas, que hacen contundentes denuncias sobre el despojo y cuentan conmovedoras historias de resistencia a la depredación de las mineras. Estimulados por la lucha de los asambleístas de Gualeguaychú contra la instalación de la fábrica de papel “Botnia”, en el Río Uruguay, el movimiento ambientalista logró que en siete provincias –Chubut, Río Negro, La Pampa, Mendoza, San Luis, Córdoba, Tucumán- se prohíba la minería a cielo abierto con sustancias tóxicas.” Mendoza Fly Fishing

“… my only regret is that you, as much as we and thousands of other fishers around the world have to be giving the fight against mega-projects that threaten the sustainability of resources.  It seems to be one of the new responsibilities of the modern fisherman, to defend the waters of the advance of “progress”.

Is there a need for mineral extractions on the level it occurs around the world? Is it inherently evil in our eyes by the industry alone? If there were no contamination would it still be unacceptable because of the eyesore? What are the legitimate needs and levels of need around the world? Is it possible to mine without contamination? Is this simply about anti-big,anti-outside conglomerates,  have’s and have not’s? Does fly fishing trump minerals? Just questions I ponder.

Mendoza FF and Decolando FF frequently take on these issues re the lack of stewardship of the earth’s resources in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and elsewhere.
