Fixing our addiction to oil

November 1, 2009

Presentation: T. Boone Pickens on reducing our addiction to oil

Just in time for the winter season when heating demand skyrockets.

This 4-minute presentation by a well-known figure does a great job of explaining what the problem is, and how we can begin to fix it.

What’s important is not only the topic of dependency on oil, but the fact that a short and concise presentation by people with influence can go a long way in clearly explaining problems and motivating people to believe that the solution isn’t very far out.

The solutions always tend to be straight-forward.  It’s the leadership or willingness to “move” that seems to be lacking.  It’s a great question to ask ourselves the next time we face a “crisis” – are we really stalling because the solution is too complex, or because we’re just not willing to take that first step?
