If you read nothing else on the BP disaster today…

read this.

From Chris Smith’s post over at WNYmedia.net…

As a nation we are limited in how we can respond, the greatest nation the world has ever known, humbled and subservient to our own need for oil and the companies which provide it.

This is what I responded to on his post…

It was my hope that Obama’s speech last night would create a resonating theme to inspire us as a nation that the time has come to start taking our dependence on oil seriously and that we need an alternative way…he almost got there.

The country needs to put politics aside and realize that we are our own enemies in the fight to change our fossil fuel habits.

The United States needs to be at the forefront of changing how the world gets and creates its fuel…right now, we are still fall in line with the oil interests.
