Struck by two figures that came by me today (thanks twitter):

Oil in waves on the beach in Alabama: Image: IMAGE: static/2010/06/16/oil-in-water.jpg

Record breaking warming in October: Image: IMAGE: static/2010/06/16/may2010temp.jpg

(Both figures degraded in resolution for use on this blog, please follow links to original high definition and for more context.)

Then I drove home and am now going to have a hot shower (diesel + water heated by oil). How can we break the dependency?
