This is ‘an opportunity to re-examine how we deliver health,’ U.S. Sen. Chris Coons said, noting he has five AmeriCorps members serving in his office.

Snow, sleet make for a hazardous weather outlook

The storm is huge, hitting the Plains, the mid-Atlantic and the gulf, so the big question is which areas get the nasty precipitation and which get rain.

“Oil has been discovered in Hell!”

 

In the oil industry there is a story of an old wildcatter who dies and goes to heaven.  He is met at the pearly gates by St. Peter and is shown around.  Each profession has it’s own compound in heaven.  Saint Peter walks him to the wildcatter’s compound. It is filled to capacity.  He invites the wildcatter to select the compound of another profession.  The wildcatter asks Saint Peter, “Do you mind if I have a word with those fellows?”  Saint Peter shrugs.  He sees no harm.  The wildcatter cups his hands to his mouth and yells, “Oil’s been discovered in hell!” The compound clears out with all the occupants rushing straight to hell.  Saint Peter, amazed by the wildcatters guile, suggests that he make himself at home in the now empty compound.  The wildcatter demurs and says, “No thanks.  I plan to follow those fellows just in case there is something to that rumor.”

 

Delaware has a lot of newfound energy wildcatters.  Some believe in climate collapse and renewable energy imperative.  Some believe that global warming is a hoax and that there are better ways to make energy cleaner, cheaper and more reliable than solar and wind.  I plan to introduce you to the many interesting characters that are shaping our State’s energy and environmental future and I hope to do it in a way that is brief, open-minded, balanced and lighthearted.   I will also feature some suprising energy facts. I hope that you believe as I do that the quality of our energy and environmental discussion and decisions will be the defining issue of our generation and that which follow us will find themselves in heaven or hell.
