These days, it’s all about the green, reduced carbon footprint.
While that all sounds nice, what would actually happen if we just ditched fossil fuels – coal, oil, and gas – overnight?
It turns out it’s WAY more complicated than you might think…
Join me for a deep dive into the world of petrochemicals!

Given the state of the world, you could be forgiven for planning ahead with things like back-up power and a method of preserving food.
Deep freezers – or chest freezers – are great for storing large amounts of food for a long time.
But how much juice do they really use?
If you’re running on the back-up power of a generator, for example, will the deep freezer suck too much electricity?
It turns out the answer will surprise you!

These days, it’s all about Going Green. And what could be more green than an electric car?
Zero emissions, baby! Well, sort of…
While the acceleration may be awesome, the range leaves something to be desired. And range is directly related to power – specifically, the available power from a battery pack.
What’s more, the power to charge the battery has to come from somewhere, and that “somewhere” is the electric grid. So what happens if all of a sudden, everyone gets an electric car?
Well, in many places, it wouldn’t be pretty. Some regions would need to DOUBLE their current grid capacity. And all that extra juice has to come from somewhere… and it ain’t coming from solar or wind power!
