It has been some time since I have been compelled to write and almost as long since I have updated this site. With so many items available in time an avalanche of inquiries, some successful, cross my desk. Yes, then there was the requisite mourning period for John Paul II and the subsequent first 100 days or so of the new Pope, Benedict XVI.
It has been a busy summer for the world.
Oil prices have risen significantly as demand for oil worldwide remains strong, currently around 80 plus million barrels per day, or around three and a half billion gallons per day. Here is the number expressed numerically:
Each day. Now think about that. The worldwide dependency on oil for energy needs is, quite frankly, frightening. Please, if you have any ideas for reducing your dependency on oil implement them!
Katrina has not helped from a supply standpoint, albeit temporarily. This hurricane, aside from the obvious physical and psychic damage, has put off line about 10% of the US refining capacity and about 5% of domestic oil production. President Bush's release of oil from the SPS eased problems of supply caused by the production shut down, but refined products, like gasoline, became very tight and almost everyone must have noticed the almost overnight price spike of seventy cents per gallon or more.
We live in a world of JIT inventory which maximizes operational leverage by increasing inventory turns. But in doing so we all live on the razor's edge, as the price of gasoline has empirically demonstrated to us all in the wake of Katrina.
A return to space by the US space shuttle stack also occurred this summer. There was the unforgettable and eye-popping video feed of liftoff which, sadly, showed that we still have a flawed liquid fuel tank insulation system. Katrina's havoc, which damaged the liquid fuel tank fabrication facility in Louisiana, has not helped and now even a March 2006 return looks doubtful.
Iraq and Afghanistan continue to progress toward democratic self-rule and security, though certainly not on an optimistic timetable. Progress nonetheless despite what the "angry left" and MSM might want you to believe. If you want the real story, ask someone who has been there working if you know of one.
These are but battlefields in the war on terror, a war against radical Islamic ideology that has taken hold in not only Iraq and Afghanistan but indeed other, many other, places in the world. Sadly, even once 100% success is attained in Iraq and Afghanistan and our troops return home the war will not be over.
For this is a war against a medieval theocracy of religious fervor, horribly distorted from the true vision of Islam as revealed to the prophet Mohammed. Until the message of hate from radical Islam is no longer taught by the Imams we will be at war. Buckle up for a long fight.
What is at stake is western civilization as we know it. This western civilization has catalyzed humanity's rise from savagery to the rule of law, the rise of democracy and human rights and successive revolutions, the Industrial, the Scientific and now the Information revolutions, world-scale "paradigm shifts" that could not have happened absent the construct of modern western civilization.
In the meantime we have business to run. Find something we have to offer at a discount and save some money that you can spend elsewhere. It will make your world a slightly better place.
