“National security, the economy, the environment and even the weather are tied to our reliance on oil. So when the leadership in Washington fails to take serious action on cutting oil use, it fails big-time. Everyone seems to get this but the Bush administration.” — Froma Harrop, Seattle Times

Have we become a nation of whiners, or what? From what I can see, GW is not using all the oil that is coming into this nation. We are! So why is it up to his administration to lessen our dependecy on oil? All these people are blaming him, but we are the only solution, as we are the problem. I am sure that this columnist is living in a house, driving a car, and consuming goods, just like the rest of us. I don’t know too many people who are ready to give these things up. I know I’m not. I can talk about it like everyone else, but at the end of the day, I’ve used my share (or more) of energy. Yes, George W is an idiot, but how does that reflect on us? We voted him in twice (maybe once). If he’s an idiot, we’re bigger idiots! A nation full of idiot whiners. Sounds harsh, but that’s the picture I see when I read these stupid articles placing all this blame in one place. That’s just my opinion.

    I do agree with you but, I also think that the goverment could use some of the money it spends overseas and invest it in companies that are on the leading edge of alternative energy development.

    So, what are each of us going to do? Not so much collectively to start, but as individuals? I’m going to reflect on this and come up with an action plan to share… enough of talking the talk… time to literally WALK the walk.

    I agree that we, as consumers, have a lot of power. If we all revised our habits even just slightly, we could have a big impact on our oil consumption, on global warming, on a lot of matters. Every action we make today has an impact on our future, on children’s future, on our grandchildren’s future.
