Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Utter rubbish ! The data is perfectly clear on the time lag of CO2 increase following AFTER temperature increase in ALL the historic records. So, what caused that warming if it was not CO2 ? ...and every other period of warming in the past few millions of years ? Both things happend in the past. CO...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

You are an expert on Germany. Happens to be my country, so I know most about this one obviously. But you keep forgetting that Germany is only .08 billion people out of 8 billion. Sure. But most countries in the world have much better wind and solar resources than Germany, so if it works well for us...

Re: Taycan video with some useful information

It's possible there are thermal advantages from the higher voltage relative to other inverter tech available to Porsche but it can't be assumed.. generally higher voltage capable silicon has a proportional increase in resistance. There are 'sweet spots' where system efficiency peaks and perhaps 800...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

We’re nowhere close to being able to build out the massive energy projects required. The equivalent of 200, 10 MW off shore (or 450, 4MW onshore) wind turbines every day for the next 30 years? That’s a total pipe dream. While at the same time replacing all built out fossil fuel infrastructure with ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Poor analogy there.. you misinterpreted the analysis. You should have said...” Yes, most CO2 INCREASE is from natural processes.” No it isn't. The additional CO2 from 280pp to 410ppm is 100% from fossil fuels. It's even more than that, but the oceans and biosphere have absorbed some of our CO2 outp...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

How the UK transformed its electricity supply in just a decade Back in 2008, as the Climate Change Act was becoming law, some four-fifths of the UK’s electricity came from fossil fuels – and climate campaigners were resisting plans for a new fleet of coal-fired power stations. Emissions from the sec...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Yes, most CO2 s from natural processes. But is 5% more CO2 harmless? Try to add 3000g water to your body every day, but only remove 2850g every day (95%). So only 5% of your water intake is to much. Is it harmless if you add 150g of water outside the natural cycle to your body every day? After just ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

We can see on average year after year how wind/solar states ultimately emit as much as 10 times more co2 than nuclear-based France. If we were comparing these co2 stats as if they were two different cars then the "wind/solar renewables car" would be considered a bad extreme polluting joke,... In re...

Population will shrink again after 2050, maybe a bit sooner. Difficult predict over long times. 80% of world population will live in large cities by than.

Re: Hub motor industry dying?

Only politicians can call ‘speed’ a 500w bike. When laws are stupid, riders don’t need to be. In most places anyway, the police does apply the traffic rules and don’t care about the power of a bike. My "250W" speed Pedelec are good enough for 50km/h+ if they are unlimited. I limit them to 45km/h wh...

Re: SURVEY: Your watts at various speeds

The Milan numbers are very cool. Sadly a legal 45km/h version is not available. Direct drive with regen would be preferable imho to use regenerative braking and for less noise inside this hull and for the option to move backwards using the motor drive. But a DD limited to 25km/h with motor drag abov...

Not sure if this is getting too OT, but S-Pedelec is not really an interesting category in Europe. Sure you can ride a little faster, but since it's considered a lightweight motor vehicle it basically means you cannot use any of the bicycle advantages, ie. bike lanes. You are stuck with the stench ...
