How do we get off Oil ?

Is there a 12 step program for Oil addiction ?

In what ways can we slowly back away from it and into renewable's, like solar, wind, and other greener technologies ?

Coal I realize is going to have it's continued run in China and other developing Nations.

Will the World go bezerk on getting off these fossil fuels ? Will the weather changes and Human migration bring about a change in the current paradigm ?

Sandy showed the US East Coast that they are just as susceptible to Disaster from a Storm than the GOM.


We hear folks say on wu all the time, the US hasn't been hit with a Major since such and such year.

Yeah, bet dat.

Ike, Isaac,and many other Storms din't have to be a Cat 3 plus on the SSS, which is a poor indicator of any impact, to have a disaster declared.

It's all a mute point when its yer Hood.


What about the shorter Winters and longer summers observed now since 1950?

Brazil is in the midst of new Daily record Highs at altitude even.

Winter has crashed into Slovenia and frozen the Country solid practically.

Methane is wafting into the system from peat permafrost now melting.

The forcing's are beginning to rear their collective Hydra Heads.

And who is to slay the culprit...?



Social Media.

We must organize.


We must elect leaders.


We must take corrective actions.


We, Humanity, not Oil, not Politics per usual,

We Humans are free.


Think on that.


Offer your say either way here.


But think on it.

We sailed away
We walked 2 thousand miles
and then we slipped away
We looked so hard
But couldn't seem to find just what
the world was for
Now we know
Just what the journey's for

Looking out to the stars
Think about what you are
What do they think of you
Animals in their zoo
They haven't got the time
Landing's not on their minds
How do they have the nerve
We're animals in preserve

They watch us all
They're only making sure that we
don't trip and fall
Now they look so hard
But they can't tell us why they're
here and just what for
Because they don't know
Who opened up the door

How can we find out more
Who owns the keyless door
Where does the circle end
Who are the unwatched men

Where do we go from here
Faith is a fading fear
Life is a waiting room
I hope they don't call me soon

How much more do you really
think you know than a flower
does about who's behind the door!

The Missing Link of Climate Change: Single-Family Suburban Homes

It's an older article (with charts showing how much transportation is a big part of our energy budget especially in the suburbs with current building patterns inherited from the postwar era) from The Atlantic Cities, but it shows that if we want to reduce our oil dependency the best way is rather than giving everyone a hybrid to instead build walkable neighborhoods that are natuarlly closer together as they were before the 1950s. In fact Patrick Doherty at Foreign Policy wrote about building more walkable neighborhoods as part of a 'Grand Strategy' to rebuild our economy, reduce the chance of systemic shocks to our economy, and reduce oil usage at the same time.

Are you using this one or the other one you posted? Only was asking because I wanted to post an article that is right up the alley of this topic.
