2011: Oil, oil everywhere!

new zealand oil spill

Last but definitely not least, oil spills drive me insane!  What is it going to take for people to realize how self destructive the continual reliance on fossil fuels is?

I live in a Canadian province that is our country’s leading oil producer.  Richest province in the country.  Destroying every inch of land available in the pursuit of the almighty $$$!  Makes me physically ill:(

How many oil spills will it take to wake up the world?  Radical change is needed!

Think you will not see the detrimental effects of the damage in your lifetime?  Think “how does this affect me?”???

Take a closer look around at your immediate environment.  Take a deep breath. Stinks, doesn’t it?

Try to look up at the night sky to see the stars.  Not many stars are visible, and definitely nothing like the night sky viewed in a country-like setting.

Change is not easy.  Immediate gratification is tempting.  At the very least, think about your choices when shopping.

One person cannot change the world, but one person can do their part. Start with yourself, others will follow.
