In my country (Germany) which is characterized by the promotion of green energy (a primitive knockabout comedy) and the wish of a energy change - away from coal, oil, nuclear to regenerative energy - fracking shale gas is called an unofficial possibility.
I call it a rape of nature and the earth.

Unfortunately I'm not an originator of a
solar powered computer...and to find out where my power and heath of my current provider comes from is difficult (mix of wind, bio-gas, oil).
However, I hate fracking...but everyone needs energy...and he is also resonsible to know where his energy comes from (as I mentioned above this can be difficult), but I try to change to completely to solar and to bio-gas from local sources and act addionally
very power saving.

To have a real weapon against fracking you have
to minimize the customers...poisoned soils, water and the local people with their problems who live near the the fracking areas will not really impress the companies. Only the lack of money will change something, because money rules unfortunately the world.:(

Well, I don't know the situation in the USA and Canada, but in my country it is possible to know from where the power comes from and you have the possiblity (with difficulties) to change to
environmentally friendly alternatives.

However, what I like to say -  everybody
is has the responsibility.

Great picture and great message!:) And sorry for the long comment.^^

Not even animals crap where they eat and sleep - and we're supposed to be smarter - sigh.

Some animals eat their own crap, though. Some even eat each other's crap.

I dunno if that fits in with your metaphor, but it's an interesting tidbit.

Well, technically, we do too, when we use fertilizer and such, so that's a good point. But it sort of feels different when humans crap on things, don't you think?

I don't think fertilizer counts, since we use animal waste instead of human waste.

It might given the fact that human waste is now pretty toxic. Besides, when animals crap on things, it doesn't mean the same thing - if you go at it from a symbolic way from a human perspective - who likes being crapped on - which we do to each other and the planet regularly.
