What happens when an entire kind of technology becomes outmoded? We won't know for a while, but some day, the site of abandoned gas pumps will be as common as unplugged pay phones and cast-off VHS players. Here, three "petrol" pumps silently rust, on a road in Trowbridge, Britain, west England, a Wiltshire town a few miles from the city Bath.

The event is terrifying on its own, but made more so by the dawning realization, in America, that our president-elect Donald Trump won a narrow election with the help, witting or not, of the same Russian government that is backing this horrific violence.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Environmentalists in Europe face a dilemma when it comes to energy production. Germany has set a course to decommission all nuclear power plants by 2022, which means the country will increasingly rely on coal and imported natural gas for electricity generation. France on the other hand is doubling down on nuclear power in an effort to reduce carbon emissions and imports from unstable regions of the world. Meanwhile, Americans love cheap fuel regardless of the source or origin.
