Stop spreading lies.

These "record amounts" of yours amount to half of what was burned in 1990 and in fact the amount of brown coal burned has been basically more or less the same since 1996.

As one can clearly see from the graph, nuclear power has been displaced by renewables and only by them. Fossil fuels use either remains stable or goes down in the case of oil.

Normally trolleys can be - withhin the city speed limits of course - just as fast as diesel buses, but with much better acceleration so they are less of a nuisance when coming from a stop or after a red light.

I grew up in a city that has used trolleybuses (good old Skoda 9Tr hehe) along with bus and tram. Trolleys were the best.

Terrorism is using violence to frighten the civilians (that is what the "terror" part of the word is about) to achieve political goals. Bombing a city is terrorism. Whether this is also a conventional military operation is utterly irrelevant. US military has been making terrorist strikes several times in Serbia and in Iraq. I know that you are flag-waving way too hard to accept it but this is the truth.
