Default Drill, Baby, drill!

Normally I steer clear of this section of coastline due to the presence of these offshore oil rigs. Hopefully there won't be any more to mar our Southern California landscape. The moral? Drive a Prius or a Volt.

Nice Walter, can't wait till they come up with a 1 1/2 ton van that is electrically driven so I can feel better about my carbon footprint when I go to work. Normally I drive a bicycle (on my off days),,, Frank

Great shot, Walter...!

Unfortunately, until the last drop of oil on this planet is pumped we will continue to
see things like this...

Well, a landscape with tens of thousands of 200-foot tall windmills doesn't look all that natural either. Unfortunately, despite all the hype and propaganda, hybrid and electric vehicles impact the environment negatively as well. There's no free lunch.

Nonetheless, amazing job on the picture.

Sometimes its hard to decide who's most to blame - the toolmaker or the tool. I'm not sure she's had much say about her life once the Kissenger machine took hold of her a long time ago.

electric vehicles are extremely limited, and generally only good for short-trip commuting, and considering that the majority of electrical generating plants around the country are still coal-fired, i'm not sure driving an electric is as "green" as some folks would like to think. still, if they ever make a Jeep with 4WD that'll go 300 miles on a charge and won't take 8 hours to recharge when i get there, i'd have to seriously consider the possibility!
