Oh dear. I had in mind a week or two rather than an hour or two! Here's a sample to be going on with. It's Deeside gas-fired power station, about 10 miles away from home. It opened to burn methane from the natural gas fields of Liverpool Bay, then was mothballed for years due to the vicissitudes of market forces, and now it's back in action.

I call it the 'Titanic', because of the four funnels, andI think it should be disguised and painted to look like the ship, as a tourist attraction to bring some visitors to a very depressed area.

Thank you Alan and bahadir. I am so happy for your replies. I feel humbly like some kind of moderator for this thread, and I am very interested in Alan´s reply to bahadir´s thoughts

To me we "need an alltogether different philosophy for the future" (bahadir)

Two thirds of the planet´s inhabitants live under conditions that "we" never would accept. Creating equal life conditions requires energy.

Counting the dead in the "other side" of the ongoing war and counting those who already are affected by global warming (Australians, Africans) hasn´t exactly got high priority, whereas the own "losses" come in exact numbers

There is an attack on the life on (of) of the planet.

The end is not near.

No one will come down from the sky.

It´s time to grow up.

We have enemies to fight.

The good must arm itself

It´s not the time for "turning the other cheek"

Thanks, Gerafix, for viewing and commenting. Yes I know, three of my sons are hard-core Star Wars fans

Did you read Foundation Trilogy by Isaak Asimov, a SF classic and perhaps the model for Star Wars

Great "sense of wonder"
