The earth is under assault by new high tech ways of extracting minerals. Natural substances like salts, ores, fossil fuel, and uranium are harmless if left below the surface. But when they are in the way of greedy fingers they get carelessly abandoned, combined with toxic chemicals dumped on the earths skin to ruin forever the balance of living things. Hydro fracturing and Mountaintop removal are two in a long list of weapons of mass destruction designed to vacuum up energy producing minerals as fast as possible, generating maximum profits for investors, requiring less personel and more heavy equipment. High tech Rambo style mining leaves the landscape a blenderized corpse, fragments of life which are polluted beyond reclamation.
