    WE taught them well... to do our bidding and when we had taken all of their riches, we created a video to blame it on... them. And everyone believes it!!! Works like a charm. Next Country!!!

    A cautionary tale.....just in time for Alberta to look at pit mining coal in the Rockies, over a billion dollars invested in a pipeline that won't happen and this after years of exploiting the land for profit of the oil and gas industry while inflating the standard of living for Albertans by privatizing public services for profit putting nothing in the piggy bank for a rainy day.

    This is a small scale example of "don't mishandle nature too much"..... What has happened to Nauru can be possible for the Earth too.... Human greed can be devastating.
