It’s a process that is actually pretty inefficient since much of the energy is relea…
Fossil Fuels in Retreat
A slowing economy has reduced demand for oil in 2022 even while the supply has tightened with OPEC+ curbing production again after an increase in Q3.

Introduction: Health Care
As much as we might all prefer to see Covid-19 in the rearview mirror, it is not yet behind us.
