Shorter work week

Friends,

On Friday, Trump posted a video featuring an image of President Biden hog-tied —with hands and feet bound together.

"The science is clear: No new oil and gas fields, or the planet gets pushed past what it can handle," said one analyst.

Fossil fuel-producing countries late last year pledged to "transition away from fossil fuels," but a report on new energy projects shows that with the United States leading the way in continuing to extract oil and gas, governments' true views on renewable energy is closer to a statement by a Saudi oil executive Amin Nasser earlier this month.
