To restate. Critical being the heating boiler (LP), some lights, the kitchen (except the electric oven), a sump pump, and a circuit for the living room and master bedroom. I grew up without running water and with wood stove heat. The current setup is way better than that. And it does last for days without starting up the generator.
The batteries are Fullriver DC310-6 gel-packs which are supposed to deal with hydrogen out-gassing. I think the model number translates to 6 volt, 310 Amp hours. They're connected in series to yield 48 volts DC to the inverter.
The system was sized to run the critical circuits in the house for 3 days. (Critical being the heating boiler (LP), some lights, the kitchen (except the electric oven), a sump pump, and a circuit for the living room and master bedroom.
The continents are masses of rock that are on average less dense than mantle rock. So, the continents are floating on the mantle rock. Upwelling plumes from the mantle are most often associated with volcanic activity and aren't "lifting the land up" at least in anything approaching a continental area. When ice melts off a continental area, that part of the continent will rebound, floating higher on the mantle rock. Some areas on the periphery of the land mass will sink due to the changing orientation of the mass, but the general motion is upward. All of this takes place over millennia. Parts of North America are still rebounding from the melting of the Laurentide ice sheet. The convective cells in the mantle have some effect on the height of different land masses, but those changes take millions of years to be measurable.
The "extremely nasty" chemicals in the battery are aluminum and oxygen. Solid aluminum metal will yield 8kWh of electricity per kilogram of aluminum mass when reacted with oxygen. When aluminum first became an affordable material it was referred to as "solidified electricity" because of how much electricity the Bayer process consumed to refine bauxite. Also, the aluminum is basically consumed by being transformed back into aluminum oxide. But, if you run the alumina back through the Bayer process you get aluminum metal again. Pretty much a closed cycle.
They all lost out the the dinosaurs and only occupied the mouse like environmental niches until the dinosaurs went extinct.
Could we at least number the anonymous cowards, I'd like to know if the crap is coming from one blabbermouth or if there's a team of sock puppets at work.
It would make it easier to get a better signal to noise ratio.
The process goes something like
Use surplus renewable electricity to split water to get hydrogen.
Run the hydrogen and atmospheric CO2 through a Sabatier reactor and get methane.
Feed the methane into any natural gas pipeline (The nation wide natural gas pipelines typically have at least a 7 day supply available).
Use the nation wide natural gas pipelines to deliver the product to gas turbine generators.
Storage and production largely use existing infrastructure.
I'll leave it for others to work out which behavior is theirs.
It's got a ways to go.
As root of course.
Start in any directory
On the system that I discovered this on, the first file it removed was the system kernel. That's when the panic started. I was just trying to get rid of some hidden directories in a home directory.
