OT: (WAY! OT) But important. Rock paper...

From: "kitepilot@kitepilot.com" 
------------------------------------------------------
I just found out that paper can be made out of limestone:

Looking at the obliterated forests around AL/GA/TN, and with all the 
quarries operating in the area, how come we don't know anything about this 
paper?
Or do we?

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Happens all the time. But unless a volcano or something spectacular occurs, you don't SEE it in our lifetime. Although it can be argued that limestone depositing out of water and other sedimentation coalescing into rock is just a transformation of matter, not creating "new". For that it takes something -really- spectacular. Relevant almost on topic gleaned from other list: http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html Is an interesting paper of programming languages, full of rocks.

=============================================================== From: "kitepilot@kitepilot.com" ------------------------------------------------------ Last time I checked only tree produce oxygen and harbor wildlife. I think that the ecological damage footprint of the quarry is lower than the current extermination of forest. But that's just my thoughts... ET

=============================================================== From: William Wade ------------------------------------------------------ Somewhat related to this side. I occasionally give historical tours in the Laurel-Snow State Natural Wilderness Area just north of here in Dayton, TN. This past weekend I took an Environmental Ethics class on the tour. What is now a natural area was a very active coal mining area just over 100 years ago. There are a lot of structures and a ton of land modifications that most hikers either do not see or only see the tip of the ice. All that to say that sometimes it takes a while, but either good or bad in the first place, all human changes to land disappear over time. This does not excuse any bad practices, but it does give hope for the grandkids no matter what bad stuff happens today. (If anyone is interested in joining on a historical hike of the area next time I do one, just let me know off list.)

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ Quarrying or mining has some impact depending on what is mined and how it is extracted. Runoff is the biggest problem. But it doesn't have to be. Besides plants are magical. Here is the proof. Plants are made of cellulose, a carbohydrate. Which is a combination of Hydrogen(from water), Oxygen, and Carbon(from CO2). Plants literally make themselves from thin air plus dew and light. That's magic in my book. ----- kitepilot@kitepilot.com wrote:
