Some people want to blame BP for this. Some blame Obama, others blame Cheney & Bush.

Let's face up to it: our unholy dependence on oil led directly to this. Until we are prepared to pay more for renewable, sustainable energy, disasters like this (and much worse) will recur.

Thank you for taking responsibility.

What have you done to change things?

Rick Spence said...

Thanks for asking, George. I am doing a lot more green-oriented writing these days, I suport Bullfrog Power, I'm an unofficial advisor to Corporate Knights (the ethics/environmental business magazine, my family put off buying a second car in favor of public transport until we had absolutely no more choice, and I support carbon taxes. And that's in addition to the environmental preservation work I do in Muskoka with the Muskoka Lakes Association and Friends of Port Carling.

How about you?
