Blood diamond? Well most of our natural resources come to us through conflict. Oil & gas pipelines, the rare Earth minerals in our phones are all obtained through coercion, conflict and blood.

We fill our cars with blood oil, heat our homes with blood gas and I am typing this on my blood phone.

Maybe we need to start talking this way.

The human and ecological costs are certainly very real.

I've personally been thinking about this since the news of oil vs FN conflict coming to RCMP action in BC the other day.
