The BP oil disaster has been in the news for some time now. We’ve seen efforts at the local levels in the news and heard folks pleading for help. But many feel that the Obama Administration has been slow in reacting and favoring the plans for intervention by the big oil company. Big oil and big CEOs will always favor the company rather than the livelihood of the local fishermen, or the environmental impact that the nasty oil spill has created.
Our Bernie has said “enough is enough”.
Senator Sanders writes, “If we take bold action in energy efficiency, public transportation, advanced vehicle technologies, solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal, we can transform our energy system, clean up our environment, and create millions of new jobs in the process.”
On June 8th, Katrina vanden Heuvel, writing in “The Nation,” pointed out something we have all known for some time now: “Sanders gets it“.
So once again, Vermont’s Senator Sanders shines and shows us why we need more like him in Washington: because he gets it! Now, lets hope our President and others follow his lead!
