I'm all for nuclear, I guess the part I don't get is why solar has no part. Maybe not from an industrial power grid scenario but I know two people who are supplying most (in one case all) of their home's power via solar. Are they doing something wrong? Is this hurting the chance for nuclear somehow?
Errrr, "youtube instead of slashot" rather.
> But because of people like yourself--who are too lazy to figure this out for yourself
Ok, did I miss a declaration of a douchbag contest? Did I accidentally click on youtube instead of facebook? Get over yourself and participate in the conversation like an adult, all I did was ask some questions I'm not out on the street marching against your views.
Interesting information, a bit overshadowed by unnecessary dickishness.
German might disagree, they are at 5% now and projecting to be at 25% by 2050.
Solar will never have a chance to become 20% of our power generation unless people try, you have kind of a chicken and egg problem there.
We now turn to Admiral Ackbar who I believe has a comment on this development....
> Solar accounts for 0.17% of our electric production in this country, tripling it won't make any difference.
Is this counting only energy company production or people/companies reducing their consumption from the grid by augmenting it with solar? If so, how?
> The sooner environmentalists get off the solar kick and focus on reality, the sooner we can replace fossil fuels with something else. (Which in this case is nuclear, since it is the only option left)
There can be only one?
I don't want useless add on application/browser extension/etc being installed when I chose to download something. No matter how much vetting and transparency, this is simply wrong.
Of course, but I'm talking more about overall project structuring, not line by line minutia.
Go decompile some oracle fusion middleware java code sometime. I assure you that what you find will not inspire confidence.
I've been here for over a decade and I STILL have yet to see Natalie Portman naked and petrified, despite all the hype.
Also, I miss OOG The Caveman.
I agree with that. Once the police don't feel the need to carry guns I'll feel safe not having one.
Your link is to a reddit run by gun nuts that links to various right-wing news agencies. How did it get modded "insightful"?
Well, let's take a look at these right-wing news agencies from the current front page of dgu.
myfox8.com, 9news.com, wbir.com, abc57.com, wsbt.com, abclocal.go.com, live5news.com, salisburypost.com, newyork.cbslocal.com, wsoctv.com.
Those look an awful lot like a bunch of links to local news station stories to me. The point of that subreddit is to bring those local news stories in one place because defensive gun use never makes national media.
But there was ONE link to freep.com, is that the only one you looked at then decided you had done enough research?
I think it is less "cool factor" and more "RIM devices are at best 5 years behind the tech curve in almost every way imaginable". Seriously, if you want security above usability and productivity, you need a mainframe with dumb terminals and motorola flip phones.
> Your mistake is in believing I benefit from government services. I don't.
This is delusion on a level I was not even aware existed.
