Nature -- Miraculous as always. Dolphins and Orcas

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Of late, there is a discussion in our community about a company wanting to build an LNG plant (liquified natural gas). they want to ship this commodity to china.

we have had mining and pulp mills, etc in this area for many years. the area became a dead zone. it has been several years now since closure of the last plant and the remedial work done to make these areas safe again. it has only been recent that fishing has opened again. and now in the midst of new attempts to put in polluting industry we get to see this beautiful sight. whales and dolphins returning here following the herring run. i went and watched for the afternoon. what a gorgeous and energizing sight. these are not my pictures, but, they are taken today.

Watching the show

how can mankind continue to put profit before life?

    please write to your congressman,. tell him what you told us about the unsafe area, and that their are whale. You need to take some kind of action. Materialism is destroying our world. I bet if you did research you would find out something about that kind of plant hurting people somewhere too!Please. eva

    The answer to your question --- pure selfish GREED for the almighty dollar!

    I sure hope the folks in the area fight & succeed at not allowing the LNG plant coming in.

    Thank you for sharing the photos --- I so enjoyed viewing them.

    God bless!

    There are much stronger controls than there were in the past. I hope the threats to the environment will be controlled if the LNG plant goes forward.

    I hope the powers that be don't approve that project. I agree with Jules, mess up our country to send something dirt cheap to another country is just an insult. Beautiful pictures, Gail!
    Thanks, Linda

    That's the question!!

    It's bad enough to bugger up our natural world for gas etc, but then to sell it dirt cheap to another country is just a double insult.
