Personaly I pay absolutely nothing, because whenever I do drive, or have to I use my own product made from 100 percent pure vegetable oil.
My Aunt and Uncle taught me how to produce it.
But mostly I use an electric powered scooter that I converted myself, simply because it was cheaper than buying a electric car.
I don't really beleive in Hybrid vehicles...I mean come on...in this case with such an amazingly large population "it's go all the way"...not just
a realistic goal of reduction...
I'm talking altogether whiping out harmful emmisons completely.
Yes, I am an extremist to the Nth degree. And I don't take no for an answer.
I simply cannot walk the middle path anymore and watch people die.
I just bumped into a woman last night at the community garden in my block where we both volunteer.
She told me that she works for a company that builds low income housing all along the gulf coast. Essentially repopulating entire communities that
were completely whiped out last year.
I looked her in the eye, and saw that she was enjoying a good deal of the profits in order to provide for her lovely family. However, I told her that
what she is doing is building very large and very comfortable and affordable mass grave on the very same land that was literally washed clean by
mother nature about a year ago.
She said somthing to the effect that it's better to breast feed a community and help it slowly along the path of awarness so that they can be enabled
to change things for themselves later on.
Well, I thought that was pretty nice and very poetic. But it is still digging a grave for an entire community.
My conscience just could not live with that.
And I think far greater results come out of uprooting entire landmasses full of people
via natural or man made disaster until they have no choice but to intimately abide by the laws of mother nature, and realize that this planet is a
living, breathing, life
that does feel pain!
