bomb America, itself?
sounds like a good idea, to me!
once again we have proven ourselves (as a country, generally speaking)
to be immature in the global sense, self-oriented, self-centered, and
materially-focused in the here-and-now.
the good news is that consistency IS a virtue.
on a more serious note, i agree that the most effective measures are not being utilized or even hardly mentioned or discussed by the suits in charge
of this fiasco.
i also agree that it certainly has something to do with profit-margins and bottom lines in the big-money world of off-shore oil.
i have another point, too, in regard to the WHY NOT's being discussed in this thread:
it is *our* serious addiction/attachment to fossil fuels that is limiting the efficacy of all efforts toward remedying this tragedy.
this morning, my bf was looking at news on the internet. i heard about a nautical collision in Singapore, on Tuesday, that resulted in a HUGE gash
right in the middle of a giant super-tanker...oil spilling into the water.
i also heard about some sort of major leak issue going on with the Alaskan Pipeline, which i believe resulted in cessation of its operation, at least
Our Mother is sending us a message:
* the sun's energy is FREE
* the wind gives us another source of non-depleting, environmentally damaging energy
* hydroelectric power is a wonderful never-ending source (although dam and plant engineering still needs to make further improvements and
renovations with an eye toward the environment and our fellow creatures)
when a baby refuses to give up the bottle, Mother will see that it's gone when it's time, one way or another.
it's either give up the bottle...or have it taken away.
man (especially so-called technologically advanced developed no-world man)
is refusing to wean himself off of crude oil and natural gas...but
it's gotta happen if man wants to grow past childhood!
