"How Deep is the Ocean?": A Playlist for Saving Our Shores and Selves

What's Your Reaction:

I have never screamed, "Drill, baby, drill" in my life. On the other hand, we all have to recognize that this problem is so much bigger than any environmentalist "Told you so" to BP, to those who did scream "Drill, baby, drill," and even to our president who may have to rethink -- or shall we say refine -- his position here.

This larger energy problem is arguably the true challenge of a generation -- this generation -- and we all have to do better. Much better. As I see it, the greatest minds of our times ought to be focused on making alternative energies a reality now. And while those great minds take care of that monumental challenge, I'll use my much lesser mind to make another silly but heartfelt playlist.
