here is the kicker, anyone with an IQ over 100 and not lazy can make their own wind generators. In fact if you are not completely inept you can easily generate all the electricity you need with low cost parts that are available. All of the knowlege you need is right in front of you, you just have to take the time to search for it and read it.

Drilling for oil, then refining it yourself with todays available devices and parts is significantly harder than a solar,wind and battery installation.

" can you please tell me how we are going to deal with all of those people displaced by this natural phenomenon?"

That is all a part of his trickle down economics on how the wealthy's cast off cash will flow down to solve that problem, we just need to give the wealthy a LOT more money.

The fact they have ONE backbone connection is an utter and epic failure. Who designed their network because that person needs to be fired.
Each major section or city needs it's own backbone connection. At least that is how we did it back in the old @home days, one failure can not bring down all services across the nation. Some cities had multiple backbones going into the area's OTN.

We publicly shame those that do things that we deem wrong, A 30 year old man that marries a 16 year old woman, while completely legal in many states he would be at times violently shunned by the masses. I know of one couple with a disparity in two ways. She is 21 and he is 42, she is black and he is white. They are very happy together and a wonderful couple yet they suffer heavily from society's horrible underbelly of what is "normal".

As a society we celebrate ignorance and conceal it under the guise of "opinion". We also tend to hide racisim under the same "opinion" concealment.

WE have some wierd fetish with letting kids be kids for as long as possible. Sorry but at 13 you are biologically an adult so you need to have adult responsibilities and adult expectations. these teenagers need to get off their asses and work, build, etc.. Instead we extend this out to age 20 before we expect them to get a job and start being responsible.

Less than 100 years ago it was not uncommon for marriage at age 16 and that young couple working hard to build their family Average age of a woman getting married was around 21 years of age. Today it is far higher at 26 years of age and insanely uncommon for a 16 year old marriage, Although outside the USA it is far lower. Mexico has a median for women at around 18 years old. Many states in the USA still have the age of consent at age 16. This means that 16 year olds can make decisions as an adult, yet for some reason we think they cant today and are still children.

Note on marriage ages, some of this is economics, back 100 years ago it was a lot easier to make a living as you made about $35.00 a month working at a foundry or smelter and typically renting a house is $5.00 a month less that 20% of your income was your rent. today most of the young pay 60% of their income as rent and have to split that rent with room mates because they can not even hope to even meet rent with their meager income. So 100 years ago it was easier for young and uneducated to make it in the world with the sweat of their brow.
