The reason I work with the Green Party is to give the following little speech "political credibility."
I think as a country our problems are so big and so deep that the only way we're ever going to solve them is for each and every one of us to take a personal responsibility for being part of the solution. To show you what I mean, just consider the way we use oil.
Every year we import more of it from other countries, every year it's a bigger part of our trade deficit, and every year the talk among scientists about how global warming from burning the stuff is going to cause climate change bothers me more, because every year our weather disasters seem to get a bit weirder.
So, finally I had to do something. What I did was I made up this bumper sticker,
I put it on my own machine, and I started learning how to drive less.
One of the things that I learned is that there are structural problems with our economy, and the only way to fix them is for each and every one of us to do their part. So, I'm doing what I can, and I'm asking other people to do what they can. So please, do what you can.
P.S. It's madness to ignore this problem...
How can I help?
