I blog about environmental and social justice issues because I am very concerned about the health of the interdependent web of life of which we are a part.

Beautiful Destruction (Original Post Jan. 17, 2010 )


Check this site out: Louis Helbig is an amazingly talented photographer who has created terrifying; heartbreaking; and beautiful photos of the Alberta tar sands.  This photo depicts Syncrude's refinery: one of Canada's largest point sources of greenhouse gas emissions per Louis Helbig. And yes, those are toxic tailing ponds around the refinery - just like the one that killed the ducks in 2008.   When you view his blog, you'll realize anew why artists are dangerous......

And thank you to Louis Helbig for allowing me to use his photo.
