Or does it convey something of lasting value that can engage our interest and give us insight into ourselves and the world around us? Before attempting to answer this question we should ask whether there is any such thing…

Big oil missed a huge business opportunity

Climate change is forcing businesses to change. In the automotive industry there is now a massive effort underway to develop complete product lines of battery powered all-electric vehicles, apparently with the goal of one day eliminating all gas powered cars. That would certainly help to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
