Thanks, Redsquare. Mentally she´s got a bit of a fox :-)

Used to have a VW-van with a large double bed and a table mounted. Then came the VW Transporter, then nothing. A pity

Great images.Renewable energy has become a part of my camera pack with multiple cusom made rechargers for all of my digitals but if you want to join the revolution you can make your own specialized panels with materials from this place:

Are those windmills in halland?I saw most in sweden around malmo/skane when i toured that country a few years ago...
Thank you, nikonmax. Yes, I want to join the revolution. The cells are also beautiful to look at

(picture:1.6 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Cells; hope they don´t mind)

There are mills all the way from Skåne up to the Norwegian border. These in particular have the location

Gothenburg
Hising Island
Outer Harbors
Arendalsudden (Cape Arendal)
in connection with the Volvo area

They can easily be accessed for anyone.

Hope you enjoyed your tour. You are very welcome back

My churchgoing wife finds the image below resonant. The planet's in need of salvation.

As for nuclear power, my opinion is that we need it desperately, however horrible and dangerous. We'll have to put up with one or two nuclear accidents per year, and hope they'll be small ones. We need everything that isn't fossil-based.

I spent my working life as a researcher in an electricity research centre. The Centre'sfounding director, now a very old man, was forever saying when I arrived there in 1974, "We must look to the future; the all-electric society".

At the Centre's 40th anniversary celebration recently, to my delight, that phrase provided the closing words of his speech. I was all geared up to remind him what he'd said, but I didn't need to.

What is required is a vast, WW2-sized research effort to get the infant technologies, notably wave power, up and running. We have NO properly practical electrical answer for transport yet. Hydogen & fuel cells are fine, but they're practical for spaceflight, not shopping. Hydrogen is the fastest diffusing substance there is. It doesn't stay where you put it. Storage that doesn't let it leak out is horribly expensive.

Storing electricity in bulk hasn't been sorted out, either, to get best utilisation from renewables and nuclear.

I am not optimistic, and fear for my children's future.
Alan. I saw you are online. It´s about time for me to respond to your reply.

First. The windmill picture you posted to this thread is fabulous. A new morning!

The romanticism had a fear for science. Why should we be afraid now, more than a hundred years after

We know for a fact that we are about to destroy the planet. No god will do it. It is up to us to make it right

Any form of energy but fossile energy has to be used. If we have to use nuclear power, we have to do so

I quote you: "As for nuclear power, my opinion is that we need it desperately, however horrible and dangerous. We'll have to put up with one or two nuclear accidents per year, and hope they'll be small ones. We need everything that isn't fossil-based."

It is really easy to come to this conclusion

There will be a disaster if we don´t stop burning fossile fuels.

There might be accidents in nuclear power plants

We have to weigh these two against each other. There is only one conclusion.

We, the inhabitants of this planet, have the responsability to find solutions together.

We as individuals also have the responsability to act in accordance with scientific results

One for all and all for one. Thanks for your reply and interesting background story

Torgny

Alan,

In Sweden there is a tradition to solve problems together

If you go further over the great ocean there is a country that refuses to ratify planetary protocols.

For sure industrialism began foremost in Great Britain but now the ball is "over there"

We cannot rely on private US and other nations companies and their shareholders for our future

We must act internationally, with no exceptions, and nationally, by creating consensus between the political parties

No Exxon billionaires shall endanger the future of my children

I am afraid too. Let´s canalize that feeling into something else

Torgny

Please someone help me with the "flare"
