While everyone is making a big deal out of the oil spill in the gulf of mexico, Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times thinks our focus should lie in a different direction. He says that the best way to make sure things like this dont happen again is to stop relying on oil in the first place. He says this is the time to seize the moment and start making our future cleaner.
The situation in the gulf is just the stepping off stone we need to make American great again. By getting away from oil, situations like this will not arise again. if america had put more importance on going green earlier, we could have avoided this whole sticky mess.
