Oil Farm

[click image to enlarge]

Tankers will be increasing their visits to the Fore River to drop supplies of home heating oil into storage tanks like these in Quincy Point to ready the supplies. The Northeast is one of the few places in our country that relies heavily on oil to heat their homes. Our heating season runs from October through March.

Wouldn't it be great some day to find a greener solution to keeping us warm through all of those months?

Yes, bc, a greener solution would be preferable and the frustrating thing is that we have the brains to come up with a viable alternative,
