Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Just to be clear, before I read a post I check to see if there are any URLs... I kind of rarely read or depending on the poster have a basic glance at the posts here who don't provide URLs for their comments/posts because they tend to be just manipulated garbage, if your not willing to provide a lin...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

That is a new PDF document release from Lazard (well its all dated Nov 2018) The problem with those LCOE charts is they exclude the ability of on-demand 24/7 generation of electricity. This is now becoming the CORE rule for a power station being built in Australia As said here for Victoria, "to rele...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I figured Telsa must have about 50 lawsuits from the articles I have seen, apparently, it turns out to be almost 300! We are approaching 300 $TSLA and Elon Musk lawsuits indexed across numerous courts, with more to go. Introducing Tesla tags, which you can use to view cases by issue. https://twitter...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Lithium molten salt reactors are coming back baby. Plus, the new designs can actually "burn" old radioactive materials instead of having to landfill them. Too bad they pulled the plug on this research back in the late 1960s/early 1970s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molten_salt_reactor M Yeah, the ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

This is the common mistake in confusing the words "energy" and "power" when we mean to say electricity. Most people are doing this. Most written articles are doing this.

Windows 10 just came out with a major update that just got released. And maybe all that spying of Microsoft on Windows 10 users has paid off, as they have finally offered a "built-in" dark-mode for the "Windows File Explorer" Before, the only way to make this happen was to use very dodgy hacks on Wi...
