It's clear that we are all dependent on oil in one form or another, and while everyone is complaining about rising gas prices, most people usually don't consider the true cost of oil.

Oil companies like to spin lies about how the earth's resources is for everyone, which is why they should have the right to drill everywhere to make that resource available to the public. Sounds nice when they put it that way, doesn't it? In actuality, when they bribe governments to drill in the once protected wilderness, the profit they gain by selling that oil goes only to them, while the environmental damage is billed to the rest of humanity. You can see it as an invisible sales tax.

For every dollar you spend on gas, you and your children will be paying countless more for rising medical costs created by pollution. And pollution comes in all forms. From the city smog that gives children asthma to tainted sea food from oil spills that can cause cancer, the damage is boundless. That's not to mention the climate change that will endanger countless wildlife and cause increasingly severe weather.

Just last year, my home town was hit by a severe storm that uprooted entire rows of trees. Even the hundred year old Christmas tree in our park is gone. This is a place that normally has no storms at all, but that storm caused so much damage and a three day black out. Do you think the oil companies are going to pay for that? Nope. But what they will pay for are lobbyists to bribe the government to give them 1 trillion dollars in subsidies instead of investing in clean energy.

This black black heart of humanity is not the future we want for our children, but what can we do? The transition from fossil fuel to clean energy is a slow but necessary one, and you can help speed up the process but telling your government to stop wasting 1 trillion dollars per year on subsidizing fossil fuel. It is not a sustainable energy source and only idiots would keep throwing money at a dying resource when they could be using that money to fund renewable energy research. We shouldn't be trying to relive the bygone past of low gas prices, instead, we should be looking toward a clean and renewable future.

You can help now by visiting and click on GET INVOLVED and sign the end oil subsidies petition. Just think of how much we can accomplish with 1 trillion dollars for clean energy research instead of subsidizing oil.

another awful thing is water companies like Nestle, that take ground water from Maine for free and sell it for like 3,000x the price of tap water.

you can basically drink tap water instead of bottled water, it's the same thing.

Hi Yuumei, So nice to see you spread this information to all. There are many who are aware but then there are many more that aren't aware of the damage, corruption, sickness and death that goes with it. As the oil companies (and so many other big businesses) get richer and richer we are moving to a point that we might not be able to repair the damage. The richer they get the more people and favors they can buy. Our politicians are getting rich to deceive us. It's quite discouraging so everyone should start to get involved even if it means just signing petitions. We need to take our world back from big business and politicians. It's not just theirs.

Yeah, and it's kind of sad there are so many little bitches out there who are too blind to see that global warming is real, yet they still say that "they don't believe in it".

The bird on her head has  my attention more than the bp oil spill censor on her crotch. Perhaps it's due to the fallen bird being upside down strategically and acts as a mask.
