I've been getting overwhelmed.
There are lots of stories. There was an oil spill in the Dominican Republic over the weekend, and another in Nigeria. In UAE, where one country recently created the first zero carbon emission community, another has just contracted for a Six Flags theme park. I said yesterday that lately one story doesn't seem enough. A hurricane of stories. A glacier. A tsunami.
And so I take a deep breath. One thing about oil everyday for a year.
Today I learn.
According to the National Energy Technology Laboratory U.S. oil production uses 10 barrels of water for each barrel of oil produced.
