Kicking an Oil Addiction

On the matter of oil addiction, climate change and the need to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, North Americans are like a 4-pack a day smoker whose cardiologist has told him he must quit cold turkey or die. Quitting is highly unpleasant, so he pretends the doctor does not know what he is talking about, or he may say to himself I’ll take a mature, reasonable, balanced approach and cut down to 3.5 packs a day. However, that’s nowhere near sufficient. He will die anyway of stubbornness, foolishness, self-indulgence and self-deception.
