Why blog?

Nothing in science has any value to society if it is not communicated, and scientists are beginning to learn their social obligations.

—  Anne Roe, The Making of a Scientist (1953)

Communication within Science has never been a more topical issue with a fore going energy crisis and factors such as accelerated climate change affecting the global population.

The purpose of this blog is to effectively communicate issues that are of interest to me, and share it with the general public in order to educate, inform and entertain them on the different aspects of science within the present day.

The Last Barrel focuses on the issues of energy, where the topics follow the need for a paradigm shift in energy markets from fossil fuel based usage, to renewable and nuclear energy.
