Spirit continues to have me focused mainly on 3D environmental and other projects, albeit with multiple energetic layers. This past week the work went into high gear when I received an 880-page ground water
assessment report for a coal ash pond in Kentucky that has been causing serious contamination of groundwater and surface water for many years. Then a few days later the federal Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) released a long-awaited Stream Protection Rule, with the preamble and proposed rule and related draft Environmental Impact Statement each over 1,200 pages. The proposed rule
is intended to prevent and control the adverse impacts of coal mining on groundwater,
streams and aquatic ecosystems and it is the
best thing I've see come out of Washington in a long time. I'm reviewing and commenting on these documents for two different environmental organizations.
The Mineral Array
pictured below formed on Windgather Mesa four days ago to provide energetic support for this work. In the center is a Pyrite Sun from an underground coal mine in Illinois. A water-worn lump of bituminous coal is left of the Pyrite Sun, a white calcite stalactite is to the right, and double-terminated black Tourmaline below. Green Peridot (gem-quality Olivine) connects the larger elements in the inner circle and a lavender Amethyst strand surrounds them.
