Renewable Energy - Not More Oil

I just cringe whenever I hear Bush and McCain talking about our need to increase off-shore drilling to solve today’s high cost of fuel. What’s sad is that they are playing on our fears (and pocketbooks) to make more money for themselves. Increased drilling will not have an impact on our immediate oil supply and therefore will not reduce the cost of gas today, tomorrow, or even next year.

I am feeling the pain at the pump with everyone else but in all honesty, it’s a necessary evil. This is the wakeup call that we have so desperately tried to avoid. We can’t hit that snooze button any longer – it’s time to do something different (and that’s NOT drill for more oil).

It’s time to change our way of thinking, our way of doing, our way of living. Can’t afford a hybrid? Carpool with your neighbors. Take the bus. Drive a scooter. WALK!!

In the meantime, sign this online petition to let your governor know that you want a clean energy economy based on renewable energy.
