Matthew Modine Points Finger At American Public For BP Gulf Coast Oil Spill

The dirty truth about the recent BP oil spill is this: it’s sorta all our faults.

How, you might ask, could a giant oil spill be your bad or mine? Here, I’ll let Matthew Modine explain:

“We are all complicit because of our unwillingness to move away from, and curtail our addiction, to oil….Look around as you sit in your car, stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic — do you notice that there is one passenger in 80% of the cars? When you raise your bottled water to your lips, do you consider the carbon footprint the water bottle has made from distillery to your hand? Or that the plastic bottle is made from oil?”

Modine recently took to The Huffington Post to explain why he believes the oil spill issue is bigger than BP. In the piece, Matthew pleads, “There can be no more questions about ending our addiction to oil. We have to end it now. We have to act quickly to avoid complete devastation of life in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.”

While it’s hard to admit, the truth is that many of us (even the greenest of us) rely on products produced by oil on a daily basis. Modine is probably right. It just might be time for America to “look in the mirror” and examine our own unsustainable ways instead of simply screaming at BP.
