{One of the Best Videos on the Web} Darth Vader Kid & Rep. Ed Markey on Clean Energy & Oil

May 26th, 2011 by

This is such an awesome video, not only because it’s a good and funny spoof of one of the most popular Super Bowl commercials of the year, but because Markey does such a good job laying out the costs of oil, the fact that we only produce 2% of the world’s oil (and can’t really increase that figure, no matter where we drill), and the tremendous potential of clean energy and energy efficiency.

Watch it above.
