I say lets roll to. I just want to see if this can work using the social networks. Then go on to bigger things like you described. Already on social networks i have received lots of good advice and also people are saying that they are going to take part. I just need some more help in trying to accomplish this. Which im sure i will receive.

Why not organise a month long tax strike, and really hit not only the oil companies but also the pharma the government and most importantly the bankers. I'd love to see that one going down. Of course the repercussions of millions of people withholding their taxes is nothing short of revolution... but isn't that just about what's called for in 2010?
I believe so... let's roll
Blythe looked next at what we do with the oil. She predicted that, although science will find ways to replace, with other sources, the fuel we need both for car transportation and the heating of buildings, we are "going to be in trouble" in trying to replace jet fuel ("unless we are willing to slow down again") and other products (such as plastics and pharmaceuticals)
