It is a rather radical solution.
Well, not really a solution at all, but more likely the first stage of a massive meltdown
on the consumer level, which would cause a chain reaction of events that lead to the
complete shutdown of the oil industry. At least until they explore other alternatives, or better yet, take the ecologically consciouse alternative
that they are already intimately aware of and impliment some radical changes very fast.
I figure such a show of mass consumer stubbornism might work as a small localized test in a major US city with say, a population of about 8 million
people. If half of that population collectively withdraws avery ounce of their support in the form of their thoughts, actions, and dollars by simply
NOT BUYING GAS!! I figure it would send a pretty sturdy message about the current state of the consumer consciousness that has simply had enough!
For example my Aunt and Uncle who live on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico, do not pay for Gas or Power, and have not since 1989. WHY?
Because they've been running everything on bio-diesel and solar power. Granted they don't do much else but tend the hydro farm, growing all their
own food, (Just veggies, nuts, and fruit).
But they seem so darn happy, it made mme realize that I'm freakin nuts to be livin in a concrete jungle paying unbelivable rent for nothing, right
along with the astronomical cell bill, and rising gas costs.
STOP BUYING GAS!
And those who know how to manufacture their own Bio-Diesel and build solar panels that have easy plug n play access to all things like tv, cell
phones, laptops, you name it....lets teach the collective consumer whores how to do it themselves or just make it so easy for them to grab the power
that they never have to pay for any of it again.
