Jobs, Renewable Energy, Us and Our Children – United States Where are You?

August 6, 2010

United States We Need You – Why Did You Leave Us and Where are You?

No long dissertation today but probably the most impactful to date. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, if this doesn’t tell it all then nothing could.

The government has closed itself down and detached from reality. What will it take to get back a responsive and effective government that is more concerned about US than the next election?

Whether one believes or disbelieves in climate change or global warming, the issue of reducing our reliance on foreign oil and fossil fuels is as much a domestic economic issue as it is an environmental one. The U.S. spends about $1.3 million per minute, $57 billion a month and more than $685 billion a year to feed its addiction of foreign oil. It seems the U.S. government is myopic to its economic and environmental impact.

In closing, it’s about us, humanity and our future. We must find the leadership, courage and conviction to get off petroleum in order to keep our dollars in the U.S. by using clean, abundant and domestically produced energy sources. Only by these actions can we ensure our children’s children will have any measure of hope for the future.

    Barry, the little girl with the sign: “I`m already USD 38.375 in Dept and I own only a Dollhouse” is wonderful. However, it was only correct while taken.
    Today, when writing/reading this blog, she will be even more in debt,
    maybe having hit the USD 40.000 mark already. What a shame, as it is not her fault.

    What to do to relief her at least a little?
    Any ideas in the readership of Berry`s On Energy blog? Would be great…
