How to Respond to Oil Spill?
What can you do to show how upset you are about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? A number of people are organizing protests and boycotts aimed at the company responsible for the ongoing leak. LaCrosse county sustainability coordinator Nick Nichols feels it's ill advised to boycott BP gas stations. Instead he suggests cutting back on consumption altogether. Nichols points out that gas and oil prices are down because the demand has also gone down. He suggests taking a bike ride and combining your trips to save on gas. Which means more money in your pocket.
