Jon Stewart Skewers YOU AND ME for Oil Spill

The BP oil spill catastrophe isn't my usual topic, but yesterday Jon Stewart took on America – YOU AND ME – about our dependence on oil. Everyone in America, including you, should watch this video. It's funny, but really, really scary.

What have we been doing for all these decades? Watch at least the first four minutes of this. If this doesn't wake you up ... well, maybe that's the problem!

  1. The problem is, we only talk about energy independence when something goes wrong, but it takes decades to develop new energy sources, implement the infrastructure, etc. When things are going well, nobody cares. When something happens, they expect these decades-long developments to magically appear and be ready to use next week.

    We can talk about energy independence all we want, it's decades away and until we actually have it in place, we need oil. That's life.
