  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    You seem to be conflating marginal cost reasons for turning things off and on with technical abilities of the tech involved. Nah, that would be a hair-splitting at this point, you don't need to disengage the entire boiler if you...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    What's amusing is that it's the coal plants that have big running costs, the marginal cost of wind and solar is close to zero. Sometimes governments want to pursue secondary goals like industrialization and employment of people, because while some...

    @1181 Based on my observations in various places including USA and Ireland, when wind power shares space with farming the amount of land it occupies is the diameters of the towers plus a meter or less of weeds. Oh, ok,...

    to gasdive @1098 I didn't say it makes no difference to the budget. It obviously makes a difference to the budget, but it makes a bigger difference to the return on investment. Apparently it takes much more time to explain...

    to DonL @1014 He was referring to one module, not a farm of them. But in any case, rebutting his stated price, but being vague as to what the real price is, isn't a convincing way to argue. So did...

    They have to be mounted, which in can be as simple as a wooden frame made from scraps, or piled up rocks, and they'll need an inverter if it's a system bigger than about 2 kW, but that's it. It...

    Anywy, here's the development. For the first time in the history of shipping, a large-capacity oil tanker has crossed the full length of the NSR using only cleaner-burning LNG fuel. http://en.portnews.ru/news/282977/ Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex (being established at the Russian Far...

    @789 Over 10 years, about the construction time of a nuclear power plant (according to the optimistic estimates on here, not according to actual experience) that's a GW. For 50 million. That's about 1/400th of the actual cost of a...

    Host @28 This is increasingly looking like the on-ramp to an authoritarian one-party state run by an extreme right-wing faction spanning the right of the Conservative party to the Brexit party (similar to Hungary): think Mussolini's Italy, without the uniforms....

    Specialist subject "not actually answering the question". Money is a means of measuring the level of profit, not of defining what we mean by profit, which is a political question and one only you can answer as to which of...

    to _Moz_ @761 In Australia we have a whole lot of people who are absolutely fossil fans and proudly so (and that pleases their donors). That's a bit harder to believe considering your link leads to article that says things...

    : I think this is where we all need to be very careful to distinguish between "what I see locally" and "what is happening globally" See, I have a very particular view on energy management because it is in my...

    to _Moz_ @709 Because while that may be obvious, it's also wrong. Currently the two sources of electrical power that are cheapest per MWh delivered to build are wind and solar. It's possibly not obvious to you because Russia is...

    Correction, I actually meant to add: It seems natural for people to think that they will have to pay a lot more money to combat the pollution "...and thus only rich people can be allowed to invest into environmentalism."...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Anyway, there's a particular problem associated with environmentalism that I don't get nowadays. Do eco-technologies have to be profitable? A lot of people, who are engaged in the "green" industry seem to be driven by logic of the marked and...

    On a most practical level, I think I just spotted a very cheap way to reduce the carbon emissions of europe by. Uhm. About a percent? https://energyvault.com/ These guys talk about how they are going to make renewables more viable....

    Looks like barely across the threshold, so probably about as loud as lightning strike, on first glance. Today's news - Roshydromet, which is national weather forecast system and a federal service, published an official statement about radiological conditions during and...

    Okay, official source actually confirmed that it was just a really big isotope power source that pretty much explosively depressurized.

    The engine gets so hot that the choice of materials that won't melt (or vaporize) under the conditions are starkly limited. Yes, but with modern knowledge of chemistry and thermodynamics it is hardly a major problems. Even regular modern thermal...

    to Allen Thomson @141 "Power source" is the term, and it is almost universality referred to electricity generation unit. In case of heat generation it would refer to as "energy source". I've listened to explanation from last Sunday, and the...

    Verified the source - it is "Fontanka", one of the most liberal media in St. Petersburg. https://www.fontanka.ru/2019/08/12/001/ Quotes include: >disaster scale >sensational about the tragedy >Physicists destroyed the position of the Ministry of Defense This is not something surprising -...

    Not very remarkable for a story, but at least it has you a good perspective on some of the "worst" technogenic marvels of our recent history (I imagine, nowadays it is more contained as we understand these things a little...

    Some estimate that there's about 3-5% government-employed people who could easily be more useful doing something else while not blocking administrative actions with their weight. No, sorry, this sounds entirely wrong! I wanted to say 3-5% of ALL population of...

    Any left wing party that mentions the word "austerity", in this time, isn't on the left. Easy way to see if they're on the left: do they advocate taxing the shit out of the billionaires and multinationals, and cracking down...

    to whitroth @695 Oh, yep, all of us old leftists viewed the USSR as a workers' socialist paradise. To be honest, this notion has wider spread among larger population at least today. For comparison - it's only been several years...
