his I cribbed directly from price of oil.org, a website I found and like.
Our government should not be under the influence of Big Oil.
The greatest barriers to clean energy are political, not technical—and these barriers are largely fueled by the oil industry. We know that in order to achieve a clean energy future, we have to expose and eradicate the political influence of the oil industry; we have to achieve a separation of oil & state.
Over $114 million has been paid by the oil, gas and coal industries over the last decade to buy access and influence in Congress. Although we’re not sure yet, the 111th Congress could end up being the dirtiest yet.
The next step to ending our collective addiction to oil is reducing oil’s influence over our representatives and demanding political independence from Big Oil.
Here’s what you can do:
•Write to your member of Congress to demand a Separation of Oil and State.
•Check out www.DirtyEnergyMoney.com to find out how much money your elected officials have received from the oil, gas, and coal industries.
Lots of things wrong in the universe, and this is one of them.
