The Cost of Oil Addiction

The great American experiment still has battles left to fight, freedoms we must achieve. The call of this generation is to finally achieve freedom from oil by moving to a clean energy future.

Oil giant BP has created a gaping wound in the Gulf of Mexico, dumping 3.3 million barrels of oil into America's ocean. This is now the largest oil spill and environmental catastrophe in our nation's history.

Meanwhile, in the Persian Gulf, American consumers send billions of dollars a week to pay for foreign oil, strengthening our enemies' hand. This unsustainable transfer of wealth to OPEC and Big Oil companies threatens our economic and national security.

We need a declaration of independence from foreign oil. It's time to encourage a new generation of minutemen and -women to deploy solar, wind, and geothermal power, stamping this renewable revolution with the words "made in the USA."
