"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

I don't always like what Joe Romm says or the way he says it, nor do I support an abrupt end to offshore oil exploration in the Gulf, but his article about BP and Obama is elegantly written, on target, and angry about just the right things.
