06/01/2007: "The Price of Gasoline Is Not the Problem With Driving"
And a superb overview of the situation comes to us from Jan Lundberg, formerly publisher of the Lundberg Letter, which purveys analytical news to the oil industry. A quote:
Record gasoline usage, which as we may discover is occurring (when the figures are in), means more deaths on the road and in the cancer wards. This is a holocaust surpassing 100,000 U.S. residents each year. It could be drastically reduced if our society really valued life over greed. Looking at the actual number of deaths of U.S. troops in Iraq (aside from the far greater Iraqi civilian casualties), the 3,440-plus figure is but a fraction of ongoing car slaughter and lethal exhaust-caused diseases in this country. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. drivers also die from unhealthy hearts caused by the sedentary lifestyle.
Lunberg now publishes Culture Change, where you can find the rest of the article, entitled Record Gasoline Prices amidst Hyperconsumption and Slaughter.
