Scary Oil Spew Photo from NASA

All energy production comes at a cost. Perhaps it is time for us to give our moral compass a shake and realize that the healthiest energy production is that which is closest to home, is least environmentally damaging, and is infinitely renewable. If that means wind turbines in our ocean views, solar panels cluttering up our roofs, or geothermal facilities in our backyard, perhaps we all have to suck it up and take some responsibility for the reality of energy production. The tragedy of fossil fuels is how unnecessary is our dependence on them. For that fact, we all share a little of shame in the BP damage, and a whole lot of the responsiblity for moving on from the dependence on this damaging fuel source.

Words cannot capture how much this single photo from NASA upset me this morning.
