Which is precisely why we need to get away from dirty old inefficient polluting coal, and then similarly move off all the other old fossils to instead go clean and finally totally get away from all the pollution waste...

We have the technology now.

If we only did, but all the calculations showing we do assume that all the materials in the tech are made from zero CO2 electric, which doesn't yet exist. So as those items are deployed they actually accelerate global warming. Eventually the reality that nuclear is the only option, which is already ruled out, will sink in. While hydro is nice, just ask the salmon that can't spawn anymore. Or perhaps those extremely toxic rare earths used in wind farms that come from pit mines in China fueled by oil. Or those solar cells that only in the last year have been able to generate as much power in their lifetime as is used in their construction.

Some day you will have to come to the truth that the solution is to reduce people to reduce consumption.

... The rest is waste heat.

The current F1 power units are at, or very close to 50% efficient.

Wow!

That's a lot better than all too many electricity power stations!...

Which is what started this thread, that electric cars are not green because power stations are not green.

The 51 States have nothing to do with it. The receipt clearly shows he was in the USA rather than the UK. Can't you see that fact?

It shows his credit card was in the USA, if that is in fact his account and not someone with the same name or the entire thing a forgery. His passport should have some entry and exit stamps if he did some travel, and there should be some records of that somewhere. Sounds to me like his barrister did the normal splendid job of ensuring a conviction, just like the public defender in the USA.

Washington (AP) -- A CSX freight train derailed near a Metro stop in Washington, D.C., on Sunday morning, sending about 10 cars off the tracks and spilling hazardous material from one of them, officials said.

No injuries were reported and no evacuations were ordered.

The train derailed Sunday about 6:40 a.m. near the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station and one of the derailed leaked sodium hydroxide, which is used to produce various household products including soap and detergents, CSX spokeswoman Kristin Seay said.

Sodium hydroxide, also known as corrosive lye, is a chemical that can irritate and burn the skin and eyes. CSX says it is working with first responders to contain the chemical.

In light of the emissions scandal and the mileage scandal do you think any claim of the greenness of some car, or technology, can be trusted?

LOS ANGELES — As the world watched the FBI spar with Apple this winter in an attempt to hack into a San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, federal officials were waging a different encryption battle in a Los Angeles courtroom.

There, authorities obtained a search warrant compelling the girlfriend of an alleged Armenian gang member to press her finger against an iPhone that had been seized from a Glendale, Calif., home. The phone contained Apple’s fingerprint identification system for unlocking, and prosecutors wanted access to the data inside it.

Congratulations on your success and I hope that you heal from your dental surgery very quickly.

Yogurt, smoothies, jello, applesauce and the like also work well, as they are cool while the warmth of soup might not be desired for best healing. Ask the dentist.

Our civilization is 10,000 years old; unless a typical civilization lasts much longer, over the 13-billion-year lifespan of the universe it’s likely the others have gone extinct, the researchers added. But there is a practical application to keep us around longer, the researchers said.

“Our results imply that our evolution has not been unique and has probably happened many times before,” Frank said. “The other cases are likely to include many energy-intensive civilizations dealing with their feedback onto their planets as their civilizations grow. That means we can begin exploring the problem using simulations to get a sense of what leads to long lived civilizations and what doesn’t.”

Nothing is sacred anymore... where Micro$oft is concerned.
Not true.
The fiduciary duty to the shareholders is sacred. The best way to serve that is to be a monopoly and monetize every possible thing, and make all things rented and not owned.
<ed>I suppose I should add that using your power to prevent your customer from finding out there is competition is also part of the duty to the shareholder.

Unfortunately: Trump appears, at this time, to be Smarter than Hillary, The Dumbocrats, and The Left.
Trump is a democrat and is working to insure Hillary's victory. Why do you think when his campaign started there was talk about a 3rd party bid? Same thing happened when George Wallace ran using the very same racist motivation that Drumpf is exploiting. Used to fracture a party and insure victory for the other side. Same as today. You are bound to repeat history if you don't learn from it.

If you don't believe it then the report that Drumpf isn't going to fund his campaign in the general election should prove it. He hasn't been able to raise much cash in the primaries and he now expects the party to bail him out in the general election when the party needs to spend on congressional, senate, governors and the rest at the same time with a head man who doesn't know how to have a $100,000 a plate dinner in Hollywood and the Koch brothers are not going to fund him!

Some people have gotten sick and tired of the tea and they are killing them off. The Dixiecrats will have to go back to the Dumbocrats.

Donald Trump's 'America First' slogan has a toxic past
...
What happened with America First is that some sympathies with Hitler and the Nazis, as well as some anti-Semitic tendencies, became to emerge with prominent supporters of America First, most notoriously in the figure of the aviator Charles Lindbergh, one of the most famous men in America at the time.
...
Do you think American voters are cognizant of the toxic past of Trump's America First slogan?

I think a lot of Americans don't know about America First in 1940 and 1941. American historical consciousness does not run that deep. However, the news media is making the connections to that time, so more and more news about this is going to come out. It will be understood in the United States that this was once a very toxic organization.

If Trump wins I would love to see what happens when he and Putin have their first face to face meeting.


They are alike in "one day I admire him" and the next day "I don't like him".
Life is like a box of Trumpputins ... y never know what you're gonna get!

Except you know it will have a stink that attracts flies and breeds maggots.

Kim Jong-un's secret "Pleasure Squad" includes schoolgirls as young as 13, it has been claimed.

The girls are allegedly picked at random by soldiers - sometimes from their own school - and forced to serve a small military circle of North Korea's elite.

They are part of what is known as the leader’s Gippeumjo, or Pleasure Squad.

Their medical histories are closely examined, and routine checkups are performed to ensure their virginity is intact.

On a slightly different note, I have always wanted to go to the door naked holding a boa constrictor when the Jehovah Witnesses show up....

Steve
:)
When they show up with the little ones in tow, I ask them why they are going door to door prostituting their eternal soul. Of course the kids are too young to understand, but the JW's put me on the don't knock list.

Another is to ask them why Peter is a "good" man for offering his virgin daughters to a group of men to be gang raped.

He's going to be great on climate change. He'll renegotiate with volcanoes and even with the Sun! He will get the best mathematicians, physicists and engineers together and when it's too warm he's going to have the orbit of the earth pushed back when it's too cold he's going to push it forward. It'll be a great climate! The best climate!!

We're going to fix that!

Why doesn't The Left understand this?
They do. Their and Drumpf's tactic to insure democrat super majorities in both the house and senate and democrat presidents for at least a couple decades. Force the most revolting display of right wing hate showing the true message behind the white is right Christian tea idiots. No one will want to associate with the tea after Drumpf finishes his display.

The only question is can Palin put up with the anti-woman stuff Drumpf will heap on Clinton?
