why dont they go explore elsewhere. why the waste divide?
human beings cant leave one blessed. thing alone.
every darned thing is our laboratory.
we set off explosions on the moon to find water,
we pierce the pristine ice strata at waste divide.
just as in an effort to understand the colorations in the wings of a morpheus butterly, the wings are mutilated, in the name of science,so in an effort to understand greenhouse gases, scientists go there and biopsy the stratas of ice.
just like the deep sea drilling....nothing is off limits or sacred.
if the snow is so blinding that they need to rub cocaine on their eyes, and they need ropes to feel their way to the outhouse...why dont they just go away?
science and progress are not justification for intruding everywhere.
cant we leave something/anything pristine and just as it has always been.
the whole earth and everything around it, is up for grabs.
whatever their scientific intentions, i dont think these researchers should have the right to go there and intrude on the mysteries and beauty there.
he enjoys storytelling too much about the hardships of the eco-scientists....leave the stories buried timelessly in the ice and snow.
where they belong.
let the earth have its mysteries, and mysterious places.
