America needs rehab, seriously. We are majorly addicted to oil and if we don’t change our ways, it will kill us, and our world. Let’s stop the greed, the passivity, the indolence; snap out of our stupor and get back to basics. Let’s use what we have to energize our world. Even our President has promised to help take on this giant, so let’s get involved.
“WHERE ARE ALL the “Save the Gulf” concerts? Where are the T.V. Benefits with celebrities and musicians giving heart felt speeches on the poor fisherman, wildlife, beaches, loss of income and sabotaged gulf economy? I find it rather strange how these people (including our own government) are so quick to help Haiti and other countries…but sit on their butts for this one.”
It’s time we woke up from our comfortable slumber and act. We really can make a difference if enough of us make noise. We all know the story of the squeaky wheel.
In the next 20 years, America’s safest solution is to invest the money it would have given to oil companies to drill off shore (and yes, they do get subsidies, so don’t say ‘what money?’), and invest in alternative energies. Not only would this benefit our country’s self-reliance, but create massive jobs, which we all know is much needed.
