It is YOUR fault that we have Oil in the Gulf

I am exhausted by the blame game concerning  the BP oil spill. Blaming others is crap, because the world is a mirror.
This is MY fault and it is YOUR fault.
We as a society, are enablers of this corporate and national malfeasance.

If everyone in America  decided to reduce their use of petroleum products(And/or energy) by 5-10% per year, EVERY YEAR, we would solve the problem from the bottom up.
Unfortunately we would have to give up our latte's, flat screens, Hummer's and the like. Unlike our grandparents, and great grandparents, we don't do the sacrifice thing....

Somebody please tell me how I am wrong. Can anyone muster any passion on this subject other than to whine incessantly on WHOSE fault it is, while never taking any personal responsibility?

To those who would point fingers at BP, or the GOP or Obama, I have only one thing to say:

Argue for your limitations and they are yours

Only by changing what we consume and; how we live can we address the root cause of tragedy's like this. If you are not doing your part, you are part of the problem.

Truth is, we will run out of OIL, and other finite resources. Then catastrophic change WILL be forced upon our children.

(hint,it won't be BP)
