Editor: It has been almost 17 years since George W. Bush stated, “America is addicted to oil” in his 2006 State of the Union address. I believe this is still true. We all rely on oil and gas extracted from underground in so many ways - transportation, heating, food production – just to name a few.

We will likely rely on fossil fuels until there is no more to extract, but I advocate for reducing our addiction with the development and use of alternative energy sources: solar, wind, and geothermal, as well as nuclear and hydropower.
