Electricity Is In The Air

Have you ever laid down in a field of grass, looked above and saw an airplane flying overhead and just marveled at the technology that allows that 488-ton vehicle to soar through the skies? Well, when Wilbur and Orville Wright invented the first aircraft, they had no idea the impact their invention would make on modern society. Thanks to air travel, humanity has had the opportunity to spread culture, food, inventions, and people around the world, all within a short span of time.

Why spend a week’s worth of time driving from one coast to the other when you can relax on a six-hour flight and enjoy a few drinks and a movie on the way? What we failed to consider, or perhaps chose to ignore with our adoration of flying was the environmental impact the greenhouse gas emitted from aircraft. According to several analysts, one round-trip flight between New York and California generates 20% of the greenhouse gases emitted from a car over the course of an entire year. For those of you who somehow convinced yourselves that flying is somehow better for the environment, I not only question your judgement, but wish you the best in the future.

Considering the very real danger that our planet is slowly perishing under weight of carbon emissions, it almost seems terrifying that aviation is responsible for 2% of the world’s carbon dioxide. In addition, when aircrafts emit nitrogen oxides and particulates at cruising altitudes, this also contributes to global warming. According to the Air Transport Action Group, aviation “supports almost 63 million jobs worldwide and enables $2.7 trillion in global GDP,” so in no way am I suggesting that we eliminate global aviation. Having said that, we are in dire need of an alternative to fossil fuel-powered planes. 

Though we are a significant ways away from doing away with conventional jet engines, engineers are currently working on creating electric-powered planes, thus offering an alternative that could help keep the planet nice and healthy. Because the demand for flying exponentially increases every day due to more people wishing to travel for pleasure and business, by 2020, global international aviation emissions are projected to be 70% higher than in 2005. The International Civil Aviation Organization forecasts that, by 2050, these numbers could grow by a further 700%. 

According to Vox, electric aircrafts may not take flight for awhile because the very nature of the technology could threaten airline business operations as they currently exist. Essentially, an electric motor allows for a short — even vertical — take off and landing, which means that these aircrafts won’t need much room to start their journey. This means that conventional airports — and all the businesses that operate within them — could change in the near-future. 

“There’s a lot of urban air mobility targets where different air framers and operators are advertising a future where you can take an air taxi from somewhere in a metropolitan area to somewhere 10 miles away and fly over all the rush hour traffic.It is really exciting because it’s starting to grow pretty quickly around the technologies that we’re already working with.”

Sean Clarke, principal investigator, NASA 

It’s not crazy to imagine a future where all forms of human transportation are powered by alternative means, especially due to the globally detrimental effects of our current fuel sources. Having said that, we are naive if we think that the powers that be will simply allow petroleum-powered industries to just switch to a more efficient power source. I believe that, technologically speaking, we are much closer to electric aircrafts than is currently conveyed to us, but we haven’t made significant progress because it would harm big oil companies.

Where Will Oil Go After This Week’s Price Hit?

oil and gas news

Even though oil had been taking a beating over the last 2 trading sessions, its price rose to $69 per barrel on Friday. However, oil prices are experiencing the worst week of 2019 mainly due to potential economic slowdown and ever-growing oil inventories. US oil inventories have not been this high since July of 2017. And to top it all off, the trade war between the US and China is growing wearier every day further affecting oil prices.

Naeem Aslam, the chief market analyst at TF Global Markets, stated, “Clearly, bargain hunters are back in town.” He later added, “However, it is still set to record the worst week of the year and this is due to the increase in trade war tensions between the U.S. and China.”

Global Scale

The global benchmark for oil, Brent Crude, has experienced a decrease of 5 percent this week. However, Brent Crude this morning climbed $0.98 to value each barrel at $68.74. Due to US sanctions and voluntary supply cuts, a floor under prices held. Market analysts are expecting the oil market to recover off of the price floor.

“It is reasonable to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be willing to step up its output given the latest decline in prices, […] we therefore expect to see higher oil prices again in the near future,” Explain analysts at Commerzbank.

In order to make the market tighter, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been cutting oil supplies since the beginning of the year. 

Brent Crude’s prices reflect that the supply and demand of oil is tightly knit. According to UBS, Brent Crude should get back to $75 this month as supply gets tighter and tighter.

“Compliance of OPEC and its allies to the production cut deal remains high, while production from Iran and Venezuela is likely to again trend lower this month,” explains analyst Giovanni Staunovo,

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
