Skiing on snow from sewage

Here is a perfect illustration of the abyss between the materialist worldview and the holistic paradigm upheld by native tribes and others:

In a nutshell, expansion plans of a ski resort in the San Francisco Peaks include clear-cutting 74 acres of forest and piping treated sewage effluent onto a mountain to make snow.

The plans are opposed by a coalition of environmental groups and 13 American Indian tribes, which consider the mountain sacred and view the wastewater snow as a desecration.

A federal appeal court just ruled in favour of the ski resort’s plans.

Now remember the magic of water (see post The subtle structures of water published on 7 June 2012) and try and imagine the disharmony of the structures in the sewage based snow.

But, for the materialists, given the effects of climate change ski resorts will need low cost artificial snow to keep up with the winter sport calendar and survive economically.

Fear not, enjoy the sight of snow when it falls from the sky.
