The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies.
Our Covid cases are turning the corner and I’m excited to be out and about again. I’m looking forward to hiking and sharing adventures with you.
Even went dancing for a couple hours last weekend. It felt wonderful but I had trouble remembering some of my favorite dance patterns from 15 months ago.

I am still a contributing writer at Forbes.com. Here is a recent article:
Role of Oil and Gas Industry in Transition to Renewable Energies – An International View.
The oil and gas industry is participating more and more in the transition to renewable energies to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere:
• Since 1970, ExxonMobil has stored 20 million tonnes of CO2 – equivalent to 25 million cars exhausts in one year. The company is storing 9 million tonnes of CO2 each year.
• BP studies are aimed at building the largest blue hydrogen plant at Teesside in the UK. By 2030 this will provide 20% of UK’s production that will be used in transportation.
• By 2021, Shell in Germany will provide 10 MW of green hydrogen. In Ireland, they will be a 51% stakeholder in a 300 MW wind farm.
• Total of France, since 2016 have invested $8 billion in renewables, and aim to become a world leader in renewables by 2030.

The early Christians… were not writing as philosophers to satisfy speculative curiosity about the nature of God and of the universe. They believed in God; and once a man does that, philosophical definiteness can never be the first necessity. A drowning man does not analyze the rope that is flung him.
