Tornado Damage in Mayflower, Arkansas

Tornado Damage in Mayflower, Arkansas from NASA Earth Observatory.

The photographs taken from the Hubble Telescope show the horrendous damage done in Mayflower, AR last week. Unless I am only imagining it, the oil spill from a ruptured and aging pipeline has not been cleaned up, but has created a tar pit.

We must stop driving combustion engines. We must stop demanding dirty oil. 

Have any of you ever heard of the La Brea Tar Pits in California, North America?

How about Mesalands Dinosaur Museum in Tucumcari, New Mexico, North America? Anyone.

Mesalands Dinosaur Museum is adjacent to a dig site that is very active 

As a Geology / Environmental Geology student I can agree that the question of what came first; the asteroid, or two-leggeds destroying the environment, we have proof that in just under fifty years, during this Era, we have nearly decimated our eco-system.

We will be those bones and shards someday regardless if we make sweeping and bold changes, but at least it can be due to an asteroid and not the unbridled greed of the industrial ruling class.
