A View From the Edge

Internet theft and hacking

Imagine your competitor is a farmer with tractors. No doubt he has a diesel tank to refill from. Now, if you wanted to steal from him, you could, in the dead of night, go and siphon gallons of diesel fuel from his tank. Straightforward theft. And unless he’s a dunce, he’ll know pretty soon gallons were missing.

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).
