The Price of Prosperity

posted by Armadillo Joe

A new photography exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. documents the price our oil dependency -- not just in the US but across the whole planet -- exacts on our landscapes both near and far.  It is sobering to contemplate and we really must ask the hard questions about how much is enough and what else we can do.

Very sobering but the wingnuts will still say "drill baby drill!"
