Ge0rGNuclear is much more safe than coal. Especially when imported from faraway!
jubalhhttps://github.com/profanity-im/profanity/commit/f4fb61b0c83b0eea20f7b60fa83bc116fd103a84 then later we did the crazy ID thing
jubalhGe0rG: but am I wrong that mostly green party in germany is against nuclear? I didn't follow very closely but I was under that impression
edhelasStep 1: Wait for Germany to get dependent on foreign import
Step 2: Do x5 in French exported electricity to Germany
Step 3: PROFITS §§§
edhelasRussia is having the same plan with Gaz 😎
Ge0rGjubalh: no, that's right. Killing Nuclear was the Greens' main proposition back in the early 2000s
Ge0rGIf only they had killed coal instead.
nephelenuclear could be better, maybe when they stop using the one tech that is good for making nuclear weapons... and invest in any of the countless other safer options
edhelasWeapons are built in factories that runs on electricity 🤔
ZashReject technology. Become potato farmer. Take over the world with spud guns!
edhelasGe0rG that's why I was asking you if a part of the german population is asking the governement to now change their plans ?
Ge0rGedhelas: I had trouble parsing your message. Our government recently decided to pay billions to Big Coal to stop coal power by 2045.
edhelasEnough time to replace them with… gaz ?
Ge0rGYes, gas will be increased to compensate for loss of coal.
Ge0rGMeanwhile, our governments are sabotaging solar and wind as much as they can.
Ge0rGIn my state, you can't put a new wind turbine closer than 1km to a settlement, with a settlement being anything with three or more houses.
ZashNobody wants things in their back yard.
edhelasWell if you replace a plant with wind turbines, that's suddenly way more backyards that you need to use :D
ZashGood thing our back yards are yüuuuge up here.
edhelasZash where is it ?
Ge0rGAnd if you want to install small-scale solar, you need to create a company and do significant tax work. If you want to do large-scale solar (on your own premises), you need to participate in government tenders.
ZashThey are putting up wind turbines somewhere here atm
edhelasGe0rG same in France, the gov is basically cutting all the money helicopter on solar
ZashFunny because they're too large to move on the large roads which all have bridges over them.
ZashWe had the shallow surface variant at a previous place. Don't think it had any problem with winter, snow is a great insulator.
SamThe ground ones are fine in winter; the above ground ones stop working if it freezes
SamWhich is still fine depending on where you live. It only freezes for a few days out of the winter in Georgia so you can revert to electric coil heaters just for those days or something and still be doing pretty good.
SamBut then you also have to have that system installed
Sam(I really wanted one of these, but it's just impractically expensive here sadly)
edhelasSam you mean a ground one ?
Ge0rGSam: I'm feeling with you!
SamEither; I mean yah, a ground one would be ideal, but it's expensive to drill
edhelasyeah, it's better to do it while doing something else at the same time
SamThere's an environmental chat room where this might be a good discussion topic, FIY 🙂 I don't have the address in front of me though. I think I found two on the search
SamFound it. I was just saying that xmpp:email@example.com?join might be a good place for this conversation (instead of jdev).
