4/04/06: After looking at the Fortune 1000 list for 2006, I believe President Bush was really onto something in his State of the Union address this year. As he explained, the USA has a large addiction to oil. This is evident in the magazine’s ranking of ExxonMobil over Wal-Mart as this year’s largest corporation, and its listing of “Pipelines” as the fasting growing industry by revenue. Of course, not all pipelines are built for crude oil, but the idea that energy and energy-related companies top these categories shows that we are certainly not moving fast enough toward alternative fuels. Obviously, no one is running out to snatch up a car that runs on recycled fast-food oil like the car driven by Daryl Hannah. We are in need of a responsible energy policy, but we are trending in the wrong direction. Until we demand from our legislators and corporations–and ourselves–a change in direction, we will be moving in reverse.
