Walking Everywhere, and Anywhere!

Every now and then I will update this blog with thoughts about walking, and being a pedestrian in Southern California. As of 2014, this blog will also be featuring posts about my bicycle adventures around Southern California.

BP Is Not To Blame for Our Out of Control Oil Consumption

Of course we are upset about the oil spill, but BP is not to blame for all of our out of control oil consumption. Exxon (ExxonMobil as of 1999) is an American owned company responsible for the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska in 1989, and BP is a British company responsible for the oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico in our current year 2010.

What has not changed in the twenty years since the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill? Our out of control use of oil products!

The truth is drilling for oil is an environmentally dangerous, and what happened to BP could happen to any oil company. Yes people are outraged about the oil gushing out in the Gulf of Mexico at the moment, but this oil spill could have happened to any company. I am not defending BP, but when we get mad at the oil spill we need to rethink our use of gasoline, and gasoline related products. Today make an effort to walk somewhere and not take your car, and cut down on your use of gasoline to help.
