Meanwhile, Germany is implementing soloar and energy efficiency and is AHEAD of its targets.
And buying nuclear power from France, Poland, and the Czech Republic. All the while, that solar energy is driving millions to make the choice between roof over head, food on table, or electricity. As prices start climbing towards of 40c/kWh.
Hey nuclear advocates, how about you fix the waste issue first, then we'll talk.
Gee, 300 years of storage for a small segment of the waste. The rest of which can be reprocessed into fuel, unless of course you're in the US and have this boogyman fear of plutonium.
but the wind-farms are a question of survival of the human civilization.
Hardly. If windfarms dropped off the face of the earth, you might need to find 1-3% from somewhere else, like hydro plants sitting idle, or from nuclear reactors which have been shutdown or furloughed for maintenance. Hell, in Ontario we produce so much electricity that we sell it at a 75% loss to the US, and we're not even at peak generating capacity. In fact, these "green energy" programs are going to drive up our electricity prices by 42% in the next 5 years.
Do you hear that sounds? It's the death of manufacturing and industry where I live.
I hope you're checking those drives periodically and have some good monitoring. SSDs from five years ago had an expected lifespan of what, about five years in your application?
8 years give or take 6 months. Since they're in a raid array, redundancy does help.
That's earth shattering kaboom, you insensitive clod. Now where's my illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator.
Not really surprised at that, I've got a first generation SSD(OCZ Vertex), and going by everything including a rough estimate I've still got 6 years left on it. And you're right on conventional drives giving bad sectors, my 1TB and 2TB drives were 3 months old and started throwing bad sectors. The 1TB will likely have to be replaced when I get back home, since it was causing controller resets as well.
Maybe your application, but not for others. SSD's fit well into niche areas in the server market, the last server install I did with SSD's was 5 years ago, they're still going strong. On the otherhand, I've had entire SCSI arrays fail in a year and a half. At least hotswapping makes it less of a pain all the way around.
Don't forget that they also design their cities with firebreaks in mind, entire sections of cities are designed to stop fires from running wild throughout even with the collapse of buildings and NG ruptures. It's not fool proof but if you only lose 1/10 of a city to fire instead of the entire thing because you can't get emergency services rolling, or a lack of water it sure does help. Wish I could find the articles on it from a few years ago, very interesting, I'm pretty sure Natgo has also done a few shows on it.
That 0.3% number is worldwide. Of the 159 cases reported in the US this year, ZERO died -- a rate of (roughly) 0.00%.
You might want to go back and re-read that more slowly, that 0.3% is for the US alone. It's 28% in undeveloped nations.
Well look on the bright side. They only have to be worried about being slaughtered by muslims if they're not, being that muslims repeatedly and routinely attack, murder, and slaughter people doing immunizations.
Yeah? How about mumps and rubella. They've had an outbreak of both of those, and measles in Canada as well. All due to the anti-vaxxers.
Have to wonder how many other apps are doing this that have not been caught yet
A lot, and I mean a damned lot. Even most basic QR readers do it now.
While true that Mandela embraced violence he felt that he had no choice at the time. Terrible acts were being committed against his people by the government of South Africa. I think most telling was that when he finally overcame and was elected president he did not use that power to trample the former oppressors but instead used his power to heal his country.
Yes terrible acts were committed against blacks by the government of South Africa, except that then the blacks came into power it was the blacks committing those same crimes against blacks and whites. Whites because "they felt they had it coming to them" and blacks for "standing up against the other blacks who wanted to commit the same crimes."
Peh, never mind that the ANC still to this day executes people in the streets, but they were most famous for doing so in their own concentration camps. If you call him a hero. I simply look at him like a terrorist who got what he wanted, and the people continue to condone those same actions he committed. And this isn't first hand experience, but it is from second hand from friends I know both white and black who used to live there and have long since fled.
Sorry Taco, there's a large swath of
