How can we stop the #oil and #gas wars?

Oil and natural-gas wars are consuming tremendous amounts of resources. The U.S. occupation of Iraq has been estimated at USD 1 trillion in direct costs alone.

Meanwhile people are sitting in their cars, sitting still in traffic jams, and the cheap oil is going up in smoke.

It is time for a change.

Communities should invest in public transit. To maximize return on that investment, do not have fares. The more people ride, the less money your town will be exporting for cars and fuel.
