Technology: Solution to and Cause of BP Oil Spill
"If there is one true religion in the US, it leads us to worship at the altar of technology." The Guardian says only a cultural shift will deliver us from future disasters like those of BP and Toyota. "We haven't quite realised that the idea that technology will save us from the problems that technology has created has been sold to us by people with a deep interest in our treating each of their disasters as an isolated 'accident', soon and easily solved. Don't worry. Go back to driving—maybe some other make for a few years, stopping at a gas station under another sign for a while—but get back to driving into the bright, new and improved car future."
