Naomi Klein Chapter 10 “Love will save this place” is basically about how communities cherish what they have. Communities are continuously trying to protect their lands, territories and watersheds, or the ocean migration routes from tar sands pipelines which threaten the health of the community by carrying poisons across their waterways. They take up this duty to protect their water, which not only unites opposition to the tar sands pipeline, but also plays a part in every single movement fighting extreme extraction against deep water drilling, fracking, or mining. Also, the communities fear for what may happen to their water system binds them together. The anti-fracking movement kicked off because of the increased fear of contaminated drinking water. This chapter is very similar to the Gasland(s) documentary of fracking, and deep water drilling causing waters to be contaminated and causing serious health risks. Water as a whole is very important to people specifically in South Africa. The local spiritual leader says “The water is so holy, if you do not have water you do not have anything to live for” he adds “I will fight to the death. I will not allow this water to be destroyed”. That is the ultimate sign of Love. I agreed with Klein when she stated how water united peoples, to protect their environment for a greater cause. I noticed that this is usually because they fear for the future of their children’s life. Love is a very great factor in getting people to act against something. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do much. The richest and most powerful companies will still exploit the law to try to stamp out real threats to lock in their ability to dig and drill wherever they wish in the world. Even though some companies have decided to divest from fossil fuels and invest in clean energy, it doesn’t amount to the already up and running extraction operations.
