Higher Gas Prices, No Public Protest, Who Wins?

Share Article

Summary - It's squarely up to the media to bail us out of the foreign oil dependence. Tell us, Peter Jennings, how can the Average Joe kick-start the switch from overpriced gasoline to ethanol, solar, wind and other alternative powers? Please, Bill O’Reilly, if you’re going to rant and rave, do so about something that will help America. Rail about the oil barons who suck American greenbacks and feed them to their bastard terrorist stepchildren. Geraldo Rivera, get your nose out of shipwrecks and talk about the need for a new generation of pump patriots – citizens willing to stand up and cry out for change in politicians personal political agendas. The media – and the public – must understand that the inability of citizens to raise their voices in protest is the real issue.

So why the lack of any rush by the media to reach the American public with the alternative energy messages? The media need to tell the public why Washington politicians, automobile manufacturers, oil companies and energy-based nonprofit organizations are reluctant to market ethanol with the same competitive ferocity they display to market cars, Hummers and SUVs?

When's the public protest about high gas prices going to happen?

How have the media handled the issue? They've ignored it. They report on terrorism, but forget the vital link to terror mongers. They report on high gasoline prices, but don't address the necessary conclusion that we're suffering the consequences of an ill-advised blood-for-oil conflict.

They report on the Iraq War, but dance around connecting the dots between terrorism, foreign oil and pipeline politics that's been threatening America for decades.

Without an informed emotional edge, we can't get the protest ball rolling to ignite a revolution, one that will save the nation from more years of terrorfears and gasoline price and supply shock.

FOIL - the Foreign Oil Independence League - has been that one voice. With unconventional billboards, posters, bumper stickers, decals, newspaper ads and Internet stories, it has brought to the public's attention many times the need for "Made-in-the-USA" energy resources.

True public-spirited media can show their commitment to social causes generally by actively supporting the pivotal American issue of energy independence.

America needs gutsy people and provocative media to get the word out and the job done.

FOIL will provide the grist. 'Mad as Hell' Americans must offer the muscle.

FOIL has been using one creative campaign after another to get across the idea that energy other than what’s generated by petro-fuels is needed to get America off its foreign oil diet and to return sanity, safety and homeland security to the USA.
