There are over 7 billion people on the planet now and as a human race, we need to come together and find solutions so that hopefully, one day, everyone can live a happy life. We are so far from that, at this point, that it feels like it couldn’t get any worse but the fact is, that it can and will unless we figure some things out. If nothing else, every human being deserves at least the bare necessities; clean drinking water, food, shelter, clothing and an education. It’s really easy for us to get wrapped up in ourselves sometimes but if you look around and see how many people on this planet live in complete and total poverty while we cruise around in our air-conditioned cars, eating fast food and complaining about traffic, you may think it’s unfair. A lot of people don’t think about those things because they’re oblivious to what’s going on in the world, but there are many people who choose to not to think about them because it’s too painful or they believe that they are powerless to help. Well, one thing that I am sure of is this: If we could solve the energy crisis then that would be a very big piece of the puzzle that is needed to put together the over-all picture. There are a lot of interesting ideas about how to go about doing that but if you’re looking to get involved, in any capacity, and want to make money and a career for yourself at the same time, you might want to think about getting a job in pipe bending fabrication.
Pipe fabricators are in constant demand, all over the world, where there is energy infrastructure being created. No matter what kind of energy you’re talking about, whether it be solar, wind, nuclear, electric, or oil and gas, pipe fitters are needed in order to set up the infrastructure that allows the energy to be created, manufactured, stored and transported for use. Millions upon millions of miles of pipe have already been installed in many different industries but let’s take oil and gas as an example. Have you ever seen an oil refinery? It looks like a never ending maze of pipes, of all different sizes, colors and thickness. Now, think about where we’d be, as a country, if there weren’t any experienced and knowledgable pipe fabricators. How would we have ever come this far and accomplished what we have? Sometimes in this life you can do a good thing for yourself and a good thing for the world simultaneously, and learning something like pipe fitting could be what you’re looking for. Even as the energy economy evolves, pipe fitting will always be a crucial piece of the infrastructural process and there will always be a demand for people who know and understand how to do these things. We can’t solve the world’s problems but we can always start by solving our own and that can lead to some pretty unexpected and positive things that you never thought possible.
