Humanity Still Stuck on Oil?

Gulf Oil Spill Cartoon, originally uploaded by rbtenorio.

What a sad sight to see in the Gulf of Mexico: The pollution caused by an oil spill that has dwarfed the impact of the Exxon Valdez catastrophe in 1989. (There has also been a human toll: the 11 BP employees who lost their lives in the explosion that caused the spill.) Is mankind condemned to such sights because of the car-crazed culture of the United States? Read more in the latest episode of "The Devil Made Me Blog It"!

Love the cartoon, Rich!
The danger is not whether we use ground transport (humans have no other choice, day to day) but in our CHOICES. Mass transit keeps oil usage down, so does walking, bicycling, and using alternate safe energies. I am hopeful that out of this toxic, horrible (avoidable) crisis to our life in our ocean and planet we will find a steadfast vision to develop and solely utilize sustainable and safe energy sources such as wind and solar, and better and more accessible public transit for everyone.
