Reality check:


Instead of listening to the political pundits and the climate deniers and a myriad of folks who don’t get it on Climate Change, why not listen to those have a better handle on this issue? 

There’s more than a better chance that Climate Change is changing our climate and that oil will be soon too expensive to drill.  Those who fill your ears with something else will be keeping you from addressing this most pressing of issues. 

Take some time and review these series of important online videos of the experts on why we as a people should be focused on peak oil and Climate Change. 

Peak Oil and a Changing Climate  The scientific community has long agreed that our dependence on fossil fuels inflicts massive damage on the environment and our health, while warming the globe in the process. But beyond the damage these fuels cause to us now, what will happen when the world's supply of oil runs out? Peak Oil is the point at which petroleum production reaches its greatest rate just before going into perpetual decline. In “Peak Oil and a Changing Climate,” a new video series from The Nation and On The Earth productions, radio host Thom Hartmann explains that the world will reach peak oil within the next year if it hasn’t already. As a nation, the United States reached peak oil in 1974, after which it became a net oil importer.
