We now breathe, drink, eat and wear petrochemicals every where, every moment, every day! There’s no getting away from them!
Where are they coming from?
“The petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products… Petroleum (oil) is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics.”
So many of the things we use (and consume) are being made from petrochemicals.

Over the years, when discussing life with MCS/ES, it is often mentioned that this is a life with a new normal. It’s a new normal that none of us asked for, and too often, it is not a very nice new normal at all.
Recently, I’ve been able to explore some of Charles Eisenstein’s work and ran across this quote:
I’m pretty sure he wasn’t thinking about MCS/ES when he said that, as we aren’t the only ones on this planet who are experiencing radical changes, but those of us with MCS/ES have been learning important lessons that we can share as a part of this new way of being that is slowly emerging.
When we develop MCS/ES, everything (or almost everything) changes.

This is not only an environmental crisis, although that is bad enough since we all depend on clean air and water for basic survival, this is also a health and human crisis.
The quest for and extraction of fossil fuels has reached a level that is threatening us all.
Reality Check: Canada’s Oil Sands
“Each fact included in Oil Sands Reality check is carefully researched, referenced and reviewed by a scientific advisory committee. This website was created as a resource for citizens, media, investors and decision makers who wish to participate in a more informed debate about the impacts of oil sands development.”
