I'm trying to share the following little speech with everybody I can:

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 problems with the way we use oil. Climate change, oil wars, trade deficit and pollution.

I had to do something. I made up this sticker.

I put one on my own machine, and I started learning how to drive less. I'm still learning how to drive less, and I still use a lot less energy than I used to.

One thing I learned is that there are structural solutions in our economy, and the only way to harness them is for each and every one of us to do their part. It's now been more than a year since I owned a car. Please do something.
