Out Of Gas

So the Guam Power Authority is looking for another fuel supplier, somebody to help keep the rising costs of bunker fuel down for the power agency. Yeah, like that’s really going to happen. We’re stuck between a rock and a hard place out here on the raggedy edge and fuel is always going to be exorbitantly expensive. And it’s going to get worse. We should have been making investments in renewable energy for decades now, building up solar and wind power installations on the island, or incentives to construct micro-power generation in individual homes. But nothing like that has been done, and now we are going to have to live with our shortsighted decisions – or live in the dark.
