Merry Christmas everyone.

While climate change is important and we have to do our best to forestall it, we must however take cognisance that it is not going to happen overnight. It will take generations. One generation is 25 years, so several generations will be anything from 50 to 100 years. Yes, by then I will be long gone.

I have been researching on how to explain to the many sceptics that oil is yesterday news. Oil industry is to be avoided like the plague, etc. is the wrong narrative.

I have been trying to learn that skill and I must admit it is difficult, but, NOT impossible.

Do make time to listen to him. This is my second time and I still find it so refreshing.

Merry Christmas once again and hope that next year will be much more joyful and meaningful.
