Russians being russians , people can't change.

Listen Dixel, I make the difference between the people (ordinary people like you and me) and the government. Unfortunately, the people are poor, and the government governs as it wishes, not taking the real advice from the people (yes, except Switzerland, where there are many referendums on all subjects). Examples: China, Russia, and now USA...

I'm thinking about moving back to my home planet form another galaxy, I'm not from this earth, you see.

Maybe this is a good opportunity to go to confession... I went to confession recently, and I feel much better now, as if all that I was carrying on my back suddenly disappeared! And on Sunday I will take communion!
And you do what your conscience tells you.

Continuing the energy crisis topic :

German energy policy baffles beyond belief ! As gas prices soar + Russia squeezes supply, Germany will close 3 of its remaining 6 nuclear plants before 2021 ends. The last three to be closed in 2022. In 2010 17 nuke stations = 25% German electricity. Now it’s 12%, soon to be zero ! And what’s filled the gap? The "marvellously" clean fossil fuel known as coa ! By H1 of this year coal = top source of German electricity - 25% v 22% from wind, 9% solar, 12% nukes. Now Germany intends to be much more reliant on Russian gas.

Nuke-power France emits half CO2 emissions/capita than soon to be non-nuke Germany. One-year forward German electricity prices = €300/MWH. Average in last decade = €50. Really good idea to close remaining nuke capacity.

In the meantime :

Naftogaz CEO accuses Russia of using gas as a geopolitical weapon :

Germany also cleared a medievil forrest to expand the biggest open cast coal mine in Europe and in the same month criticised Brazil for not stopping the rainforrest fires.

Looks like Russia funded the lobbyists calling for the German government to close all their nuclear power stations after the Fukushima disaster. Russia knows exactly what it’s doing.

I have not heard of brown coal being called Lignite before. It is more profitable as fertilizer. Nothing should be burnt bar hydrogen. Burning the cane field will leave the soil baron of carbon if repeated over time. It would have been frowned upon and a suggestion of gnashing of teeth is anorexia, it will occur in felines. I have only seen one natural draft chimney that produced power and it is in Spain. There is no other talk of it. What is wrong with the technology. The lines of force toward the center of the earth due to gravity are not parallel so that is why the natural draft occurs. The skirt on the bottom of the chimney means that the lines of force are even more angled : - it acts as it were a wider chimney. There is hardly any difference between night and day power production. The skirt does not need to be clear, the hotter air has less density but also will have less horse power due to less density. There would be two generators one rotating clockwise the other anticlockwise to straighten up the air flow. Any side of a hill can be put to use with a tunnel to get the draft like along side pumped Hydro power. Whenever there is a transport tunnel it can have draft for fresh air and generate power. The hill will also have a chimney on top which can have a rotatable wind cock on a roller mechanism that rotates away from the wind. It would have a bell lip shape on the end like a spoiler to create even more draft when the wind blows. Stops rain entering too. This technology can be put to use in water.

Hello everyone in cafe. I am back for few days then offline again when year will change. Christmas went just fine and was able to hold on traditions like past years. I got too many mentions or notifications...damn

Is anyone going to fire fireworks this new year? I will stick with sparklers (sticks that emits sparks when ignited) as they are only good firework left. Quality of other fireworks went down but price went up. 

What I find odd is that apparently these days you need to be 18+ to handle sparklers. Back when I was kid I was legally allowed to handle them. Apparently it is safety reasons why not, but I wont know anyone with proper brains that burned themselves with one as child. Besides there is lot of adults that harm themselves with fireworks so age got nothing to do with it.

Well one less joy for new generation. Well I am happy I grew up before all of this insanity and was able to have proper childhood.
