A Day In Dimock, PA

A preview of coming attractions, brought to you by the oil and gas industry. (October 2009)

If corporations were to consider the future generations, could they rape the land and make people sick? Corporations exist to make money. The planet and the human beings who live on it now, to say nothing of the next generation or seven generations to come as the Iroquois took into account, mean nothing to corporations. We are collateral damage, nothing more.

In November, a group of families from Dimock brought a lawsuit against Cabot Oil. Read about it here.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seven generation sustainability is an ecological concept that urges the current generation of humans to live sustainably and work for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future.[1]

"In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation... even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine."

—Great Law of the Iroquois
