“The world’s whole petroleum resource is estimated at a million terawatts, which happens to be equal to the amount of solar energy that reaches the earth every day.”
above quote from The Independent Home by Michael Potts
Just as the world is moving forward with sustainable and alternative energy sources and management, we are allowing our piece of it to be raped and plundered by Big Gas.
Just as the United States consumers are buying more and more locally, we allow our farmland to become an industrial zone.
We are willing to let a small minority of our fellow citizens pollute the resources one hundred percent of us use. What is sane or democratic about that? We all share this halo of air and water.
Our aim should be to make each home energy independent. No monthly bills. That is what we can leave our children. That would be American.
