- Jun 4, 2010Much in the same way Monsanto is curing world hunger?! There has to be a new way of doing business and it does not involve business as normal or we all perish, it is just that simple. Anyone who professes otherwise has their head in the sand. A linear way of business, system or thought pattern is going to fall off a cliff. Our world (as in all of us) is a cyclic order of things. We cannot go further without closing the "Loop."
After we find all the oil and spend countless billions on technology to find it,get it and process it , when that is gone we will have all this tech/industry to do what with???!!! Find and use alternatives now while we have the inertia!! I thought this was a RE site not "wait until the next best thing comes along" site.
Philosophies may differ, nature has been doing this a long time. Everyday here in Texas when the wind is howling think of much electricity we could be making, everyday the sun bakes Houston think of how much electricity we could produce and store (via CSP's). Everyday you drive these damn crazy freeways, get stuck in gridlock tell me that high speed trains and EV's wouldn't be a better decision. The air we breath has gooten remarkably worse even with TECQ and we are on a collision course with some major ailments.
To be continued.....

Tyra, I don’t read Ahmed’s posts as defending or
minimizing the damage from the oil spill. I think he was making the case
that BP is working hard via a multipronged approach and applying the best
resources they can muster (and they have considerable resources, not to mention
motivation!) to address the problem. If you disagree with the facts he
presented, address them, but don’t accuse Ahmed (directly or indirectly)
of “seeking to excuse inexcusable behavior and thinking” unless you
believe that is what he really is doing. His experience in the oil patch
brings helpful perspective; its isn’t glorying in the past.
As posted earlier, BP is a leading solar company. So why
demonize them? Why not demonize all the consumers who use their
products? They (we) are the true force behind oil companies’ search
for energy supplies “to the ends of the earth”. It is easy to
attack visible targets like big corporations, but they are responding to market
and societal needs. HREG can help by changing individual behaviors
through education. As consumer habits change, corporations will respond.
