The past might always repeat itself, like in concept of cycles. Is the past forgotten that we can never really move forward? Does that memory get lost? Or do we all really know its just easy to stick with “old habits”? Energy doesn’t die, it transforms. The old energy exists today- the vibes and waves are still flowing from “the beginning” (of this cycle of creation) the endless creation and recreation of elements, gas, stars, galaxies, and black space….etc. How many cycles has there been- maybe we’re 55th- maybe 55,555,555???? Or maybe this is the first and the last?
How many types of life lived here on earth? We aren’t the first, from what we know- we had dinosaurs roaming the earth millions of years ago. The earth is 4.54 Billion years old! Are we descendants of an ancient alien race? Where did we come from? Who is the bookkeeper?
We need to wake up and realize we are spinning on a sphere of solid and liquid rock! The inner layers of our earth are as hot as the surface of the sun! Without the liquid outer core we wouldn’t have a magnetic field to protect our atmosphere and hence not be able to support life on earth.
Here is more data about your home:
Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and the densest and fifth-largest of the eight planets in the Solar System. It is also the largest of the Solar System’s four terrestrial planets. It is sometimes referred to as the world or the Blue Planet.
Age: 4.54 billion years
Radius: 3,959 miles (6,371 km)
Distance from Sun: 92,960,000 miles (149,600,000 km)
Mass: 5.972E24 kg
Surface area: 196.9 million sq miles (510.1 million km²)
Population: 6.974 billion (2011) World Bank
How safe is fracking? Will we be experiencing more earthquakes? What about Radon Gas- a highly radioactive cancer causing gas found when fracking shale gas?????
The oil and gas industry is seeking to expand natural gas production across the nation, as new technology makes it easier to extract gas from previously inaccessible sites. Over the last decade, the industry has drilled thousands of new wells in the Rocky Mountain region and in the South. It is expanding operations in the eastern United States as well, setting its sights most recently on a 600-mile-long rock formation called the Marcellus Shale, which stretches from West Virginia to western New York.
Nearly all natural gas extraction today involves a technique called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in which dangerous chemicals are mixed with large quantities of water and sand and injected into wells at extremely high pressure. Fracking is a suspect in polluted drinking water in Arkansas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming, where residents have reported changes in water quality or quantity following fracturing operations.
Natural gas producers have been running roughshod over communities across the country with their extraction and production activities for too long, resulting in contaminated water supplies, dangerous air pollution, destroyed streams, and devastated landscapes. Weak safeguards and inadequate oversight fail to protect our communities from harm by the rapid expansion of fossil fuel production using hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.”
In West Virginia in 2009, 426 Marcellus wells were permitted and 125 were drilled. In 2010, 433 were permitted and 58 drilled in WV.
For more reads about Shale Gas and Fracking- this is a very important insight into the Radon, which is a highly radioactive gas that is found in shale gas being used and going to be used more here in the United States.
