    Silica is a hazardous substance, in fact too hazardous for the general public to be inhaling it. Let’s all work together to encourage our leaders to support environmentally friendly ways to obtain energy! Hydraulic fracturing combined with mining sand and processing it are not effective nor efficient ways to obtain energy at the expense of human life! Let’s all research these topics and meanwhile encourage our young people to find alternative ways to assist us in living comfortably together in harmony with the earth and all things which inhabit it.

Courteous, concise comments relevant to the topic are welcome, whether or not they agree with the views that predominate here. Long rants proclaiming the infallibility of your own views or favorite ideology will not be posted, neither will repeated attempts to hammer on a point already addressed, nor will comments containing profanity, abusive language, flame-baiting and name calling. Please indicate precisely what you are blogging about. I just got a post from ? E-Mail ? which said: "Is this going to be OUR furture??. I have no idea what they were referring to and no way to contact them. This is why we prefer comments that are signed by actual persons who leave their E-Mail address (it won't be published) so they can be contacted if questions arise.
