Another opportunity

We believe that is the perfect vehicle for this message.

For over 40 years, the government, and the people, of the U.S. have ignored one opportunity after another to change our addiction to oil. The OPEC oil embargo in 1973 was a perfect opportunity to start the change. We ignored it. President Jimmy Carter outlined his oil crisis warning in 1979. We ignored it. The Exxon Valdez disaster in 1989 was a clear example of the environmental perils of crude oil. We ignored it. 9-11 bluntly showed how our oil addiction was directly funding those who most wanted to destroy our country. We ignored it.

Today, the Gulf of Mexico is threatened with a truly disastrous situation. WE CANNOT IGNORE IT. Whatever the name of our site, we believe that it’s our duty as American citizens, and as people of this world, to do whatever we can to spread this message.
