Ideas About The Oilspill

by Handsome Matt

I’ve been thinking about what I can do to lessen my guilt in the Gulf oil spill.

Let’s face it: We’re all slightly responsible for it. In some way, shape, or form we contributed to the current demand for oil.

Here are some rough ideas that I’m still processing through:

1) Drive only when necessary. Simply asking the question “Do I need to drive?” at the least should remind me to be incredibly efficient with my driving habits.

2) Walk and bicycle more.

3) Use mass transit (which sucks in Columbus)

3 B) Demand better mass transit

4) Reuse and recycle

I’m open to suggestions, but the fact that I ran out of ideas after five minutes, suggests that oil is currently ingrained in our way of life.
