  1. The government needs to get off this addiction to oil and start getting clean with solar and other healthier options. Germany has already proven that solar energy works, but the decision makers are still holding on to the hope that oil will pull through. There is no logical reason to continue oil subsidies, unless the ones making the decision have an ulterior motive in trying to avoid sustainability. I sincerely hope that that is not the cause, but if it is, I wouldn’t be surprised.
