4th of July - Independence Day

What is our Independence Day good for
if we are dependent from Oil ?

It is such a shame that in this year on
Independence Day
we are reminded every minute of the poisonous oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, destroying the habitat of all these creatures living in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and depriving the people living at the shores of the Gulf of Mexico of their livelihood.

Let's do a dramatic switch over to renewable energy !

- a switch less dramatic than the Gulf 'oil spill' -
but with huge rewards, rewards we will never get by burning up fossil oil reserves.

When the United States Declaration of Independence was signed, the British still ruled this country.

Let us celebrate this 4th of July to become independent from the British again,
independent from the British Petroleum,
and pledge to get rid of the petroleum oil spill at the Gulf of Mexico!

Looking at this tremendous oil spill,
I have the feeling to be totally helpless.

Will our Government solve this situation?
What shall we do?

"Ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man" - words of my hero, words of President Kennedy.

Today he would say: "Ask not what the Government will do for you, but what together we can do to be freed from the curse of oil".

I am sure you have heard the phrase "
Power to the people

Dependency on oil makes helpless - Solar Panels give Power to the People, a power which can not be usurped to get power over people, on the contrary, Solar Power will set us free.

How often do we hear that we are living
in the land of the free?! Did you ever think about this?

Are we really living in the land of the free?

As long as we are depending on foreign oil or life threatening oil exploration, we are not living in the land of the free.

Only renewable energy will give us the freedom we deserve. Think about it!

People of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida, and people all over the country, use your idle time and put Solar Panels on your roofs! Only Solar Panels will give Power to the People!

I know, everybody has to work hard and there is rarely any idle time.

But think about it! Decide for yourself, if you like to live as a free in this country or if you like to be depending on oil forever destroying more and more of our beautiful nature and country.

By the way, we have to admit, once and for all, in the Gulf of Mexico, most of the hydrocarbon reserves in the relatively shallow shelf waters have been drained!

The easy oil is gone!

Only in deep waters there’s plenty left: at least 56 billion barrels of oil equivalent — a measure that includes oil and natural gas — the catch is that finding oil at such depths is extremely challenging and hugely expensive.

But what a price has to be paid for this! We can see it every day.

A decision has to be made: living with oil forever destroying more and more of our beautiful nature and country up to the day where the last drop of oil has gone, or making a dramatic - but safe - switch to renewable energy from sun, like solar, wind, and geothermal now!

Geothermal energy needs deep drilling, but this should be no problem - to tap geothermal energy the oil rigs are coming in just right!
