Battle of the fittest or strongest?

Image result for wind energy and fossil fuels

The energy sector has been evolving incredibly in the last years but clean energies still seem to be only accessible to the few.

Climate change is a reality as true as now my Christmas being spent with 15 degrees outside and the sun shining outside, and I can assure that in my childhood rain and being by the fireplace was a yearly Christmas tradition.

So no matter what "people" might tell you should starting to get concerned about the environment, if you still didn't. And this message is mainly to big corporations.

Yes, this article is not with the perspective of telling you that you should recycle, save water, save energy, bla bla bla. We all know that and even though all our efforts are important, what does that matter if we still have big oil corporations and countries that deny the entry of other energy sources.

We are used to seeing in the movies that whoever bad guy has money he can silence everyone and buy everything that allows him to continue its money pipe flowing.

Why so much reluctance by oil companies into accepting that the future is in the renewables?

I believe the inherent reluctance to change that is embedded in human behaviour still exists and the oil industry is just another example. Why are we all so afraid of change?

This is not a psychological article, so let's just say that is all about risk and the fear that is behind what is unknown, more concretely in this case, if the renewables will generate the same revenue as the multibillion-dollar oil industry.

We never want to admit when our business is in danger of failing but only those who accept it and try to change will survive. 

Probably a very good and relatable example is about Nokia. Nokia was once king of the mobile phones. And its lack of adaptability to the new "touch" trend kill them and has taken away its throne probably forever.

Renewable energies have made big progress in the last years and oil companies are starting to catch up mainly by trying to develop a business model for renewables similar to oil, for example, hydrogen.

My main question is mainly could oil companies be doing more with their huge resources and market influence? Better, shouldn't they be doing more?

And I'm saying this with just a business perspective in mind. If you have the possibility to be the leader in what the business of energy will be why should you wait? 

In less than 20 years the energy market will very likely not have oil as the central piece and companies that have more than 100 years of existence (BP, Shell, ...) might suffer from the same disease as Nokia and see their reign come to an end. 

For that, I say it's time for a Republic.

The environment is extremely important and wouldn't you like to not feel guilty by turning on the light. Renewables will allow us to take better advantage of what we can do with energy and that it's evolution.

(e)Con of the day: Look at that beautiful wall folks!

Second shut down of the US Government and this still does not seem to have an end.
Meanwhile, no one seems that worried about the ones really suffering from this nonsense shut down, every government employee that is at home without receiving wages and without working to fix the real problems of the country.
On the other hand, with these policies being pursued by Trump he is likely to accomplish what he wants. He will make the USA so unattractive that the queue to enter the country will be very reduced. 
It is impressive and sad at the same time that it is 2019 and we one of the biggest issues in the world is a wall!!! You know that thing that is made of concrete or anything that does not enable you to pass to the other side. 
World, let's focus on what is really important! And remember that the way forward is building bridges not walls!

Breaking News: Trump has an important announcement.

I think Trump has featured too much in my blog already, and never with the headline 'Trump resigns'. But I find very amusing to talk about stupid things so, here we go again.
Firstly, I need to clarify the meaning of a word so everyone understands what I'm talking about.
      Wall: - a vertical structure, often made of stone or brick, that divides or surrounds something;               - a vertical structure that leaves people without working and that shuts down the government of a nation that is supposed to be one of the strongest countries in the world;                    - a vertical structure that is used as a bargaining chip for useless and frivolous political games.
Now that you read the definition can you understand how ridiculous it is?  Actually, the craziest part is that there is a threat of Trump declaring a state of emergency because of the wall.
My opinion about politicians was not very good but now it is definitely very bad. It would curious to study why there are n…

Did someone say "this is a mess"? January in review!

It seems that I have been always talking about the same issues for the past months. Can someone create a new scandal, please?
Do you remember the problem with the brexit agreement? Do you remember the US government shutdown because of the wall? Do you remember Elon Musk's setbacks?
Well, everything is still a mess and the scenes of the next episodes continue a mystery. I mean for entertaining purposes, the last months couldn't have been better, if this novel was available on Netflix, for sure it would the most scene show.
The Brexit deal was not approved and Theresa May survives in Government due to 19 angels.
January became the charity month in the USA, with a wave of community work across the country.  
On the other hand, a revolution seems to be happening in Venezuela, and Maduro "socialism" seems to be coming to an end! I think Venezuela is a perfect example of the worst parts of socialism when the populism is so big that what is transmitted as socialism is in fact di…
