You Might As Well Face It, You're Addicted to Oil!

The struggle to separate oil and state needs to be fought at home and at key international events like the G-8 Summit that took place in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. When the G-8 met in Scotland last year in 2005, global poverty and climate change headlined the agenda. This year, “Energy Security” was the key issue; while last year's priorities seem to have been pushed aside.

The G-8 has absurdly defined 'energy security' as the promotion and expansion of oil and fossil fuel production worldwide. As argued in an op-ed last week, this strategy will only increase our oil dependence, exacerbate global warming, and drive countries deeper into debt – in other words, make us less secure.

Our collective addiction to oil is at the root of at least six fundamental issues that are adversely affecting our nation and indeed, the entire planet: corporate-driven globalization, global warming, poverty, war, terrorism, and the undue influence of money on the political process.
