Say Good-Bye To Oil (infographic)

Say Good-Bye To Oil (infographic)

Adéu, 再見, Näkemiin, Au revoir, Auf wiedersehen, Slán, Sayōnara, Adeus, Adiós, Hasta la vista, Adieu, Arrivederci, and in any other language…it’s time to say GOOD-BYE to non-renewable energy, and HELLO to renewable sources.

3 Reasons To Say GOOD-BYE To Non-Renewable Energy:

1. Fossil fuel prices have skyrocketed.
2. Energy sources are a security problem.
3. Climate change and pollution are on the rise.

3 Reasons To Say HELLO To Renewable Energy:

1. It’s clean and local.
2. It is inexhaustible.
3. In most cases, the overall cost is lower, and renewable resources provide energy at a known cost that is not susceptible to the vagaries of fossil fuel supply and demand.

Here’s How Much Non-Renewable Energy We Use:


How To Say GOOD-BYE To Non-Renewable Energy and HELLO Renewables:

Since we’re thinking visually here, let me introduce you to the Rocky Mountain Institute: RMI is an independent, nonprofit think-and-do tank. RMI created an informative infographic, Reinventing Fire. This infographic speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

Thoughts? How do you suppose we say GOOD-BYE to non-renewable energy and HELLO to renewables?

Some good ideas. The problem I have with wind energy is that the blades kill birds. These needless deaths need to be eliminated.

would be wonderful if society as a whole could say goodbye to oil.....

If we do not get off the oil addiction we can say hello to increasingly violent and devasting storms as we are witnessing already. When we can no longer live and afford all the damage repair maybe we will wake up to the TIME IS NOW to work diligently on clean solar and wind power. It is so sensible as to be obvious even to the most ignorant and greedy oil companies. No matter how much money they make they will not be able to enjoy their wealth on a filthy violent planet. We are all at the mercy of Mother Nature and she is really pissed off. Hope you all enjoy living underground. I would rather be dead.
