Last year I started this list with lots of space flight issues, but when I made my list this year I started with aircraft technology, and then immediately shifted to maritime in item 2. It has been a strange year and that is why I ended my list with a repeat and enlargement of item 8 on my 2015 list; devastating ignorance.
I wonder why I ended up having 13 items this year.
Holiday presents are always difficult to choose. I suppose a present is a two way street; it should delight the gift giver and the gift receiver equally. To find something that fits that bill is always a challenge.
Then to choose a Holiday present that suits everybody and that can be delivered over the internet is even more difficult.
In thinking about that I am giving all our friends and clients all over the world at land and sea a copy of David JC McKay's book "Sustainable Energy, without the Hot Air".
