It's very disheartening to see projects like these continuing to be pushed forward. I understand that it's going to take generations of cultural and ideological change before "we" start prioritizing the health of the Earth over the wealth of the few. But still. It makes me sad. I wanted to write to say that I recognize that thousands of comments in disagreement with this project will make no difference, but I'm writing one any way as an offering to the Earth. She knows what's up and I want Her to know I see Her. We are literally in an environmental crisis which is threatening to cause the extinction of the human species. Like...what is the point of these projects when we have no future? Who gets all the money from this project when there is no functioning society because everything is fucked? Yikes. I'm just trying to live my life by adding love and hope to the world because it feels like there is so little of that at the moment. Does this project bring love and hope to the world? Do YOU bring love and hope to the world?
