Our future should not be based on oil

With so many alternative power generation options and many transport technologies that are waiting in the wings, but are not being picked up by companies making fortunes in oil, we are oiling our way to extinction.

What we don’t need now is another oil well. Good on Greenpeace for developing this interactive website showing the effect of an oil spill on our island nation.

One positive way we can all do is move towards alternative power/energy options.

  • Take a bike/bus or train ride instead of the car
  • Install solar panel options to reduce reliance on power generation
  • Turn off all unnecessary lights and appliances on stand by
  • Buy energy efficient appliances when you can

Well … you all know the drill.
