Letter to the Editor
It hasn’t even been a year yet since last summer’s oil disaster in the Gulf and now BP wants to start drilling again? Shouldn’t there be some rule that you have to wait at least a year after one of the worlds biggest disasters before you can even ask to start again? This is the price we pay for oil. We have to pretend disasters don’t matter. And then there’s the Libya War, yet another war for oil. In Japan radioactive water runs into the ocean and that radiation will become part of our oceans.
Reality has been tapping humanity on the shoulder telling us that we better start taking this issue seriously and to come up with a clean energy solution that actually works. So before reality slaps us up the side of the head we need to get a lot smarter and start taking our situation seriously. Real problems are only solved by coming up with real solutions. We need to embrace reality, make reality our friend, and remember that the way we live tomorrow depends on the decisions we make today.
