Recent Energy and Environmental News - Special Version

Recent Energy and Environmental News
June 8, 2020/in EnergyEnvironment 

In this special version of our Newsletter, I’m only covering two topics: 
      1 - Some background about the Newsletter, and 2 - George Floyd.

1 - The AWED Newsletter 
I receive a LOT of questions about the Newsletter (How long it has been published? How much time do I spend putting together each issue? Can the Newsletter be reposted on social media sites? Can past issues be easily searched for topics of interest?  Etc., etc.).

For the first time ever, I’m publishing answers to all the questions I’ve been asked. If I’ve missed any, let me know and I’ll update this summary.

2 - Some George Floyd Insights —
I wrote a commentary about this issue, from the perspective that our recent poor societal choices have made the riots (looting, arson and deaths) completely expected. My piece was published in the DailyWire last week. 

Archbishop Vigano’s superior letter to the President touched on some of my theme, as did Dennis Prager’s excellent video about values. 

a) Some Black Perspectives on the George Floyd Matter:
President Obama (2015): Looters are ‘Criminals' not Protestors 

b) Some Other George Floyd Insights:

John Droz, jr.
physicist & citizen advocate

Note 1: We recommend reading the Newsletter on your computer, not your phone, as some documents (e.g. PDFs) are much easier to read on a large computer screen… We’ve tried to use common fonts, etc. to minimize display issues.
Note 2: For a detailed background about the Newsletter, please read this.
Note 3: See this extensive list of reasonable books on climate change. As a parallel effort, we have also put together a list of some good books related to industrial wind energy. Both topics are also extensively covered on our WiseEnergy.org website.
Note 4: If you'd like to be taken off this free distribution, simply send me an email saying that.
Note 5: I am not an attorney or a physician, so no material appearing in any of the Newsletters (or the WiseEnergy.org website) should be construed as giving legal or medical advice. My recommendation has always been: consult a competent, licensed attorney when you are involved with legal issues, and consult a competent physician regarding medical issues.
