I just had an accident as a biker. I was hit from behind in my own lane. maybe that flashing light would have made the driver of the car more aware of me
bullshit. I just was in an accident as a cyclist earlier this year, not wearing any protection. none would have protected me, I broke my wrist and i have a serious shoulder injury.

I wonder what the actual nationalities of the owners of such big companies are
I think the weapon industry wants to avoid that at all costs.
yeah, and a coal plant goes never offline unexpectedly.
or geographic distribution
Only if you build all of them on the same place. Go check a wind map.

Patent reform advocates have long argued that "patent trolls"—companies that do nothing but sue over patents—are harmful to innovation, not just a plague on big companies. A new study attempted to find out if there's any real data behind that accusation or if it's just a few sad anecdotes.
Turns out there is a very real, and very negative, correlation between patent troll lawsuits and the venture capital funding that startups rely on. A just-released study [PDF] by Catherine Tucker, a professor of marketing at MIT's Sloan School of Business, finds that over the last five years, VC investment "would have likely been $21.772 billion higher... but for litigation brought by frequent litigators."
The study defines "frequent litigators" as companies that file 20 or more patent lawsuits, which limits the definition to true-blue "patent trolls," or Patent Assertion Entities (PAEs), the term used by the paper. The study covers the period from 1995 to 2012.
Tucker's paper estimates a 95 percent confidence interval for the amount of lost investment to be between $8.1 billion and $41.8 billion. Those numbers are relative to a baseline of just under $131 billion of investment that actually occurred during that five-year period time."

newsflash : 1/all other forms of energy are also subsidized. 2/renewables are the only forms of energy that are becoming cheaper. 3/in my country, subsidies have been nearly completely removed, but renewables are still growing.
AGW has a straightforward reasoning behind it : 1/ the greenhouse effect of CO2, which you can test for yourself: see youtube. if you have other results, warn the nobel price committee. 2/amount of CO2 released can be estimated as well, by calculating how much oil, coal has been burned the last centuries. this amount is far larger than any removal of forest cutting has been responsible for, and far greater than volcanoes.
Now, following in the footsteps of Phineas Fogg in then iconic book Around the World in 80 Days, pilots Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg plan to take Solar Impulse 2 for a trip around the globe beginning on March 2015.
Will they be able to pull it off? With 17,000 solar cells to power four electric motors and spin the propellers, the pilots say they can do it in 25 days and nights, or 500 hours of flying non-stop."
