Thanks for sharingand . I haven't read about alternative energies in the last year. Any good updated analysis on the prevailing technologies that will save this sad state we are in? (e.g. good articles summarizing wind, solar, etc.). Thanks in advance:)

- I am not convinced at all by your argument. Think of the Hiroshima victims, how many cancer victims do we have in Europe due to Tchernobyl? How many genetic deformations? There is no reliable statistic because you cannot prove the cause and effect. But the increase in cancer rate should be alarming.
The energy industry is maximizing short time profit, not caring about long time effects. But we humans should care about saving our nature and environment as the most important condition for continuous survival of humans, animals and other forms of life.Mar 22, 2012
- Fine. Now compare that to effects of coal and other energents. There are studies and data available.
They are even made for industrial production and powerplants.
These numbers are NOT small.
And that is even BEFORE taking into account any effects of expensive energy.
My father died a year and a half from effects of untreated prostate cancer and even though we weren't in best of terms, we had some sort of gentlemen agreement.
He needed me and I did evrything I could.
From that experience I can tell you that MAJORITY of painfull, gruesome deaths go completely unnoticed by media.
If you want to see mess that you couldn't see in Beirut or Bosnia, take a tour through some onkology department, especially in some country which economy is crumbling.
Srebrenica masacre is afternoon walk, compared to that.
For example, did you know that NATO used extensively uranium ammo when bombing Srbia ?
Many have died from the aftereffects and still no one cares.
But all it takes is one faulty pipe to leak radioactive fart that wouldn't kill a rat and media goes crazy in a nanosecond.
BY all means, use expensive electricity if you want.
But before that, DO explain your folks ALL effects of that.
Including closing much of the industry.Mar 22, 2012
- I still remember all the shitty "green" insanities that Slovenian parliament was full right after our seccession from Jugoslavia.
BTW:I don't mind marihuana, but I really think that bong line of reasoing doesn't belong in politics.
One of those smart ideas was that we have to stop our nulcear power plant IMMEDIATELY.
Greens were relentles and debates could not stop. All the data did not help much because it was immediately labeled as "lie of nuclear lobby".
So, one day Chief of powerplant staff apperad in parliament and said ( I'm paraphrasing):
"I've had enough of this shit. We are prepared to close the powerplant. We are highly educated scintists and technitians, so we are not afraid for our job prospects.
Pleas, just allow us a couple of weeks to gradually power down, and a couple more weeks to put it in inactive state. Then do what you want.
But I do demand one thing:
Before we start, tell the taxpayers WHO EXACTLY ordered the shutdown and who will be responsible for aftermath ( be it positive or negative ) INCLUDING the price of electricity from now on."
ANd that was it. Not a word was said after that. More than 15 years later, Krško still works 100% and nuclear power is cheapest by a margin, even though France and Italy are neighbours ( each one AFAIK having quite a few nuklear powerplants)...Mar 22, 2012
- I am very sorry about your father´s death and also from my own family experience I know the suffering from cancer and its treatment very well. We also agree completely on the criminal act of using nuclear amunition. Some countries even think of of starting a nuclear war and we are getting prepared psychologically. This war might destroy nuclear power plants anywhere in this world. That´s the kind of risks I see. Nobody seems to care. But when it happens we might not be able to care any more. So who cares?Mar 22, 2012
- Americans are being prepared to pay for Zionists goals.
Israel was formed by ppure aggresion and basically teroristic act.
Their stance was "we don't give a fuck".
Whatt they did not say is that a lot of their power comes from our pockets- basically people around the globe.
I don't see the need to be involved in another holly war.
If americans are eager to pay for it, fine by me.
And above all, I don't see Iran as some dark power.
USA was amongst other things one of crucial factors of Iran-Iraq wars ( in fact, USA instigated it) in which some 5% of Iranians lost their lives.
I am not religious at all and I would be majestically pissed, if someone did that to me.
I wouldn't need a promise of 72 virgins to kick someone's ass and I don't see them as extremists.Mar 22, 2012
- I agree completely, we do not need a holy war, we do not need a nuclear war, we do not need any other war. When I was young there was a saying: "what would be if there were a war and nobody would participate?"
We should think and meditate about this strategy.
But brainwashing is very effective nowadays.Mar 22, 2012
