Nettleton, MS –  Oil prices are through the roof and it’s costing us dearly. We empty our pockets in order to line those of the oil barons in the Middle East and elsewhere, and as we do so our dependence on their crude oil continues to deepen at an alarming rate due to our consumption habits.

This need not be the case because America has the technology and the natural resources to break this reliance on the Middle East. In fact doing so has several other significant benefits. Firstly, by purchasing American fuel we can stimulate the economy by keeping our US dollars in US pockets, but perhaps the most attractive aspect is the green issue; for the fuel in question is renewable plant and/or animal fat-based biodiesel.

Why Healthcare Must Go Green

julie_pearson.jpgGreen has always been my favorite color, though I didn’t know why until recently.  Now it is fast becoming the world’s favorite color, and thank goodness for that.  Whether more and more people are ‘going green’ and becoming more environmentally conscious because it is trendy and cool, or because they realize it is a necessity to ensure the survival of our race, I am glad to see it.
