THE EARTH IS OUR MOTHER - SURELY WE CAN - AND WE MUST - FIND A BETTER WAY TO TREAT HER AS HER RESPECTFUL & LOVING CHILDREN!





THIS (above) is how All over Guyana's interior SHOULD look for now & forevermore!

The Export of Gold generates the single largest foreign exchange earner (dwarfing ALL others) for the Republic of Guyana in South America, but the current way the Gold is being extracted is leaving a destroyed 'moonscape' at various locations all over the country where spiritually dead/diseased men with the same insatiable GREED for Gold that Columbus and the first Europeans exhibited 523 years ago - continues to be callously displayed TO THIS DAY!

I have said enough in just one opening  paragraph, let these photos I took myself near the blessed Kaieteur Valley 3 weeks ago give you the PROOF that what I say is TRUE!

HOWEVER, this below - is what you will see (as thousands of tourists do each year) when you leave the pristine beauty of Kaieteur above - and head back to the capital city of Georgetown, these ruined ex-mining landscapes that stand out from the jungle green below are literally in the HUNDREDS just on our flight path alone....what about the REST of Guyana we do not see?

                                           Where is the 'mandatory re-filling & re-planting'?
 If these were re-filled & re-planted you would not see them standing out as you do in these pics
                                   Wide view showing dozens of destroyed ex-mining camps
                                             Close up of one of these ruined landscapes
        Another close up of a landscape ruined by miners - who no doubt have polluted the river with mercury as any fool can see from a scene like this
                     Look how MANY camps have ruined the jungle in this small area alone!
 Is Gold Revenue worth destroying the lungs of the Earth? What Jackass honestly thinks that is a 'necessary evil'? It is a very UN-necessary evil that springs from the bottomless pit of greedy men's cold hearts and their need to justify or excuse the sins they commit against mother nature in the name of profit!

Just for the historical record, the native Amerindians were collecting  raw Gold in Guyana for THOUSANDS of years, why even the famous English seafarer & scoundrel 'Sir Francis Drake' recorded in the 1500's  that he obtained a statue of a Harpy Eagle made by Amerindians in Guyana of pure raw gold  that weighed 14 POUNDS! Yet, no such destruction of the landscape was the result of the indigenous Gold extraction...it is OBVIOUS to me that Guyana needs to return to the ONLY sustainable and Environmentally friendly method of Gold extraction that has EVER worked in the country - and DO IT THE WAY THE AMERINDIANS DID before so-called 'civilized' IDIOTS began to do it the 'modern' and destructively environmentally unfriendly & unsustainable way!
