Okay people, so I have a problem.

A huge one.

Although it doesn’t really concern me personally, it is still a problem that I do have:

“Fracking”

They pump shit into the ground to crack rocklayers and extract oil/gas. Chemicals that are poisonous, chemicals that cause long term damage. Chemcials that ARE seeping into the groundwater table and poison the water supply of thousands not to say millions.
THIS IS LEGAL.

YET, at the same time people are forbidden to collect rain water.
Water that falls from the heavens onto their houses, and they can’t collect it.
Why? Because, and here comes the BS, that water is supposed to supply the groundwater table. (Note, in most areas the rainwater is channeled into the sewers, from where it goes into a nearby river from where it’ll go into a water treatment plant, from where it goes on. Perhaps the step of “river” is skipped. So the sequence is then: Rain drain – sewer – treatment plant – river/sea)
So collecting rainwater that fell onto YOUR OWN HOUSE, on YOUR OWN PROPERTY, is ILLEGAL! While poisoning the water supply of thousands or even millions is perfectly LEGAL.

Here’s my idea of changing this. We force the people (CEOs, bribed, bought, lobbied politicians) to drink the water from the area the fracking is conducted in. (Together with Monsanto and other GMO people who are forced to eat their own GMO crap, together with their children)
We pull this off for about a year, if not a single one of them shows any ill effects we can call it safe for consumption. But since they’ll probably have any ill effects – good night.

You know that Bullshit is about to fly if they forbid you to collect clean water that is falling from the sky. You wanna know why they outlawed that? Because it is FREE. You don’t have to pay for it.
Next you know they’ll outlaw solar panels on private homes, because the sunlight is supposed to heat the roof, it is vitaly important that the roof is heated because [insert bullshit logic here]. Real reason? Because you would get FREE electricity from it. You aren’t buying their electricity from their friends and “supporters” (you know the people buying, bribding, lobbying the people in charge here).
Just wait and you’ll see.

Until that time, take care.
