I told the social security agency in my last contact email that me and the nursing staff have been talking and we agree that I should be put on medical disability and not asked to work due to health concerns for the moment.

For the first time in nearly a year the social security agency didnt ask me for extra paperwork and simply accepted my request for the monthtly stipend, first time in a year. Yay.

Global warming doesn't exist. With the coldest winter on records, NY Times doesn't know how to keep the meme alive.

Fuels are not fossil. They are HYDROCARBONS. try it with me. "Fossil fuels" is a fake meme. Hydrocarbons are made by the planet.

$5 bln out of it's what , $180 bln fund, less than 3%? not guaranteed , "we may be blah divest".
Slow news day, gotta keep "fossil fuels" meme alive.

The Fortnite game is a horrendously addictive mobile game. Mobile phones and mobile games are very addictive.
I think there should be laws to prevent those people like this guy and his marketing team from praying on young kids. It is a complete, lawless wild west.

Impossible. This guarantees the black out of their "renewable" (quotes are mine) grid.

I went on one website to a very very detailed explanation why Germany, who bought thousands of wind turbines from it's monopolies such as Siemens...won't be able to.
Wind is not renewable resource as we speak. It isn't guaranteed. In a large scale , it can go down ("no wind" situation) for days, not only putting it below other renewable resources. But also requiring such a "renewable" solution to have stand-up power plants of other technology (naturally , coal power plants will work well).

As of today, will only work if they replace it with nuclear.

Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to open by November

In another positive news, Russian Gazporm is close to complete it's Nordstream 2 gas pipeline , bypassing US-color-revolutioned Poland and US-color-revolutioned Ukraine, and poor paying , but no US colored revolution yet Belarus. Naturally, US and european monopolies are heavily opposed to it, can't allow energy independence to Germany and can't allow Russia and Germany to do business with each other.

Forcing Germany via EU and various globalist laws to shut down its nuclear power plants was awesome and worked for oil monopolists and US selling its liquid gas across the Atlantic for a while. And they also tried to force "renewable" BS on Germany , hoping to keep one of the world's leading economies on a leash. As wind is completely unreliable, and US liquid gas is too expensive, and oil/gas from places like banker-owned Netherlands and the North sea is going to be in short supply.

However, Germans understand geopolitical games well. They also know that wind as a reliable source of energy doesn't work. So , as they are blocked from various angles via US colored revolutions, they long ago realized they need their own, direct, reliable energy source.

So they will be pumping themselves russian gas.

This is great news for the world, and may stop geopolitical , semi-chess warfare by a few key players.

Quote:German Greens politician Jürgen Trittin — referring to renewable energy capture such as solar and wind — told DLF that while he was not an advocate of the pipelines, Gazprom had on the "failure of an active Europe climate policy."

Only if you have hydro power plants on rivers.

Wind doesn't work. Because of it's inherent un-reliability, it falls below any other "renewable" source, as you need power backups, sometimes for days.
And for a nation, you can't store it in "batteries" like you can do for your own home.

EROEI , Energy Returned on Energy Invested, for USA in US-spy agency created wiki it is says 1:20.
Reality is that even without installation and support it is  1:18.
But there's even worse news.
When you count installation and support , wind falls to 1:5 .

Wind is also unreliable, as I said, and you need the whole power stations on alternative fuels to be on stand by when the wind stops. Which makes the whole wind "renew ability" nothing bot hot air and blowing the wind.

Two charts. I am sorry, reality can sometimes be tough.

EROI on Energy Invested

[Image: 578px-EROI_-_Ratio_of_Energy_Returned_on...SA.svg.png]
(enlarge)

EROI shifts , including installation and support. As you see here, two worst investments in energy is 1) Ethanol, which is nothing but fraud , and 2) Wind, which has the largest drop. Both of these "investments" are not sustainable as they don't produce enough energy (there's no nuclear on 2nd chart).

[Image: eroi_time_shits.png]

It's being said that over 10,000 wind turbines are now dead in California alone (no ROI).

Nuclear power shows up very well as a net provider of energy, and only hydro electricity is nearly comparable.

I am sorry that Rockfeller owned US oil monopoly Standard Oil, currently called Exxon-Mobil (and 20 other smaller subsidiaries) made you think completely different. "Science" that monopoly money can buy...Oh, these naughty oil companies and their financing of the anti-nuclear, anti-coal, anti-hydro and "green" fake news and organizations....

This is interesting because most of the milk at the stores I go to is regular milk.
There is a very small section for vegan milk.

Same here, but I'm fairly rural - I think it's mostly larger towns and cities and which the assortment of vegan milk and vegan products in general has become huge. I am seeing photos of the vegan sections in supermarkets (in Europe, that is) now and then, and it's just mind-blowing! A huge, and steadily growing demand, and the supermarkets are meeting it. Lovely!

smiLie, I am sorry I never reply to your messages. I feel honoured that my posts are worth your time and efforts to reply to them and spread what is your truth, I just don't have the time to engage in a debate, and I also agree with Glow, I too think this is not the right thread to engage in them anyway. If you wish, you could start another thread elsewhere, in which you explain your own stance on the issues you have commented on here? You could even just copy & paste what you have written already, for all those, interested in it, or wishing to debate it?

All the best wishes!

Not really, it's because of faulty statistics. They "asked 2000 people" , probably in their own neighborhood where vegan milk is sold. That's just bad statistical sampling, nothing more.
