Are You an Aqua Potato?
Since our last Statehouse update, we have changed Speakers in the Ohio House because Larry Householder has been accused of engaging in what the US Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio described as, “Likely the largest bribery, money laundering scheme ever” in Ohio history.
At the heart of the $60 million dollar bribery charges are an apparent dirty deal to bail out unprofitable FirstEnergy nuclear and coal plants through legislation titled House Bill 6.
Beyond this most recent Statehouse scandal, I would argue that a clean energy future is critical to Ohio. The question Ohioans need to ask themselves is do you want clean energy to power our economic future or do you want to remain in the smog age?
To illustrate that point, let me offer the theory of ‘sunrise industry vs sunset industry’.
The Japanese used this illustration to describe what is a growing economic sector versus a declining economic sector. We all know that economies and markets change. We want to be where the economy is growing. It is perilous for your region to be dominated by sunset industries.
One of the best examples of the sunrise vs sunset analogy is Fortune 500 lists. Who is on it now – who was on it 30 years ago – who will be on it 30 years in the future?
We all have the opportunity , one way or the other to go down to your nearest body of water and walk along it or just sit in your car or sit on a bench and just look at the lake , creek or ocean !
Water is mentioned in the Bible; it has spiritual applications . The woman at the well was offered “living water” by Jesus himself John 4:10 i.e. -the Word of God= the Bible . Jesus explained how you can live forever in heaven when you die . Far better than suffering in Hell for all eternity. Everyone lives FOREVER in either Heaven or Hell. Hebrews 9:27. It is appointed unto man, once to die and then the judgment. No second chances ! Upon death you’re headed straight to either Heaven or Hell. If you haven’t TRULY trusted Jesus as LORD and Saviour, there’s no better time than right now! Please read the third chapter of John in the Bible ( right after Luke) to help you understand how to get to heaven.John 14:6, Jesus saith unto them: I am the way, the truth , and the life; no one cometh unto the Father,except by me. (Jesus)
