Will we just wait for the inevitable? Hawaii is so dependent on oil it's gonna hurt one day
I like straight talk. So another plug for Doug Carlson's new blog, Hawaii Energy Options: Time for Straight Talk. What can be more direct than this:
Thank you for your interest in our energy health, which isn't healthy at all. Due to our overwhelming reliance on imported oil for our energy, the Aloha State is on life support. Cut that flow of oil and we'd be in economic arrest. Call it Code Red or simply critical, our condition is alarming and demands action to dramatically increase renewable energy's contribution here.
