In 1985 when Doc and Marty McFly powered up the Mr Fusion Home Energy Reactor in Back To The Future they travelled forward 30 years in time using household waste and nuclear fusion.

Little could they have imagined the reality – that by 2016 the world would be seriously contemplating the end of oil and the emergence of brand new energy technologies.

Back in January I wrote here that the Chinese are stealing a march on the US, and everybody else, in building trade relations with Cuba.

“In the coming years Cuba is set to become one the fastest growing economies, and it’s a mere 90 miles form the US coast.  It’s madness that the US is not moving to secure this economic miracle for itself, with both hands.”

I predicted that tourism and trade would grown even faster than the so called experts predict.

And lo it has come to pass!  If these numbers are not a wake up call to dozy Uncle Sam I’d be astonished.
