Freedom from Oil Action Camp

America has a deadly addiction to oil. We now devour twenty-five percent of the planets petroleum. Our dependence spawns resource wars that breed hatred and put our young people in harms way. It wreaks chaos with our climate, creating Super-Storms that take thousands of lives and destroy communities. It threatens front-line indigenous communities that live in oil-rich regions around the world.
The technology exists now to safely transition away from the fossil fuel paradigm. Yet Big Oil has squelched the debate by using it's Big Bucks to capture our political and electoral processes. It's high time for "We the People" to free our society and the planet from the tyranny of oil.

Action Climbing?
31 May 2006
I think heroin addiction is a bigger problem than as Bush puts it, oil addicition.

You guys keep stating that Bush is a moron. why do you then use his "addiction" term about oil? He's Bush. He can't be right? Right?

And what's Action Climbing? What does that have to do with energy other than I guess if you climb a lot you use a lot of energy.

Are these the fools that sit in Trees? If so, cut em down. Timber!

I'm addicted to paper.
