I spend a lot of time out in places that look amazing, but are polluted with effluent from energy extraction. This location looks like a glacial lake – pristine and blue. But the blue actually comes from aluminium precipitating out of coal mine runoff from improperly sealed coal mines. Thanks to the work of many dedicated activists, environmentalists, and volunteers, we are saving streams and aquatic habitats from these pollutants. But there are over 1,300 miles of streams currently affected in Ohio alone. Get involved with your local organizations and clean up streams in your area. As Wall Street has begun trading water as a commodity, let us make sure we have enough clean water for all.
