Welcome back from the weekend, Oil & Energy Investor readers. I hope you’re as ready as I am for a busy week, because it’s certainly looking busy right from the outset.

This week, my main topics of interest are outside the U.S. Given the recent geopolitical situation, I can’t say I’m all that surprised.

In July 2018, Japan experienced torrential rain and landslides, which killed over 200 people.

And just this year, we’ve had dozens of earthquakes, blistering heat waves, tropical storms, floods, volcano eruptions… and the year isn’t even over.

All of these phenomenon result in loss of lives, loss of homes, and loss of power.

In other words, we’re in quite a pickle.

Experts tracking these events believe that in the coming years, natural disasters will continue to occur more frequently and more intensely, which means that if we want to make any meaningful change to our infrastructure, we need to do it quickly.

Which is what I want to bring to your attention today…
