Interrupting Your Normal Cleantech Programming for…

September 11th, 2012 by  


 
Most of you probably don’t know David Anderson, but he’s actually the founder of CleanTechnica, and the founder of the media network we’re a part of — Important Media, previously known as Green Options (GO) Media.

While this project isn’t exactly cleantech-related, it’s a hugely important project that David is working his butt off  on. It deserves as many eyes (and as much support) as it can get, I think. For more on what I’m talking about, here’s my post on the matter (which includes links and widgets to the Kickstarter page where you can pitch in and help to save a wonderful, super unique hot springs):

Help Fund This Project! (Seriously)

 
The founder of our whole Important Media network (yep, our network of 19 progressive blogs) has actually had to step away from his role at the helm of Important Media recently. He’s had to do so for a couple of reasons, but most notably at the moment, to work his butt off in an effort to save some precious, unique (truly unique), and healing natural waters in Utah — Pah Tempe Mineral Hot Springs.

There’s a lot to learn about these unique hot springs. I’m sure even more than I’ve learned. But for an intro, you can check out the Kickstarter link above and the video below. And while you’re at it, pledge some friggin’ money to help save the place!


As more of a taster, here are some excerpts from the Kickstarter page:

“This place, this sacred and pristine mineral spring tucked into the same desert river canyon that runs through Zion National Park, this refuge which so many people have valued, enjoyed and loved over many centuries, needs to be properly championed as the priceless wonder it is, and made available to as many people as possible, while preserving its peaceful atmosphere….

“Pah Tempe’s mineral water, which everyone else recognizes as sacred and healing, is referred to by the local country water district as, incredibly, a *pollutant* which they feel needs to be captured and ‘disposed of’ somewhere out in the desert. For them, this requires condemning and closing the property on which these precious hot springs sit. This outcome has been their consistent goal for many years, despite a worldwide (and local) fan base, and clear scientific consensus on the amazing biological uniqueness and diversity of fish in that exact section of the river, now made endangered by the diversion of water in the name of development.”

For more, just go ahead and check out the Kickstarter page. (And chip in! Even if only $1 — it really does help.)
