Hi Everyone,

The usual Saturday post has moved to Sunday to mix things up a little and keep everyone on their toes. I will preface this by saying Unpopular Opinion, but this week, we have COP 28 in my neck of the woods, and although I am all for climate change, I am surprised at the audacity of prominent people in power continuously pushing for an immediate end to fossil fuels without actually thinking.

Crazy! What they should really be saying is, let’s (re)integrate Nuclear power into the mix, and then yes, we can really change quickly. More on why in a next publication.
