Electricity: At what cost?

Don’t get me wrong, I am an environmentalist and I want us to move from carbon fuels as much as possible to electricity. Take a car, for example, a normal family car uses 10-plus barrels of oil a year to run. The same car with batteries only uses 1.2 barrels of the equivalent of oil (gas, coal or oil burned in generating plants).

We can still be thankful

Believe it or not, this year, we actually still have much for which to be thankful — now and, we hope, in the near future. Yes, the world is in the middle of a deadly pandemic. As of Monday, Nov. 23, 1,396,579 people have died across the globe from the coronavirus.
