Subject: insane profits

I think that the profits being made by the oil companies are obscene. And I have no problem boycotting a particular oil company. But without sounding like a naysayer, I am not sure if we, as a society, are ready for the committment to do something like this. At least not in the numbers it would require to make a real difference. It would really take a very large group of people that are willing to spend a considerable amount of time to accomplish this. Believe me I am not trying to rain on the parade... I would love nothing more to take them to their knees. But I think that eventually sending out this email in quanity would cause it to be perceived as spam?

Unfortunately Mike I am afraid you are right. Our society just does not even have the desire to get off their fat.....sofas and do something to help themselves. And yes alternative energy sources and conservation will help but not soon and we will pay dearly. But that is why we sail, use solar and wind power to provide power and spend a lot of time in other parts of the planet.
