Queen (UK) “all in” on renewables:

Man Who Tells the Queen He Engineers Solar Panels is Stunned When She Orders Some Installed on the Castle

  • Good! But: why only on one castle? why not on all of them?
  • Why does She even need more than one castle?
    • Ever heard of mobile homes or energy self sufficient homes? No?

“A man who told the Queen he was a solar panel engineer when she asked him ‘what do you do?’ was stunned when she later got in touch—and paid him to install some on Balmoral Castle.”

“Businessman George Goudsmit met the Queen at an event and had a quick ’20 second’ conversation with her.”

“She asked the 80-year-old what he did and he replied that he made solar panels.”

“The Managing Director at AES Solar recalls, “As she walked away she turned around and said, ‘maybe I should have solar panels at Balmoral’.”

“He was shocked” -> why that? the tide is rising, it’s about time the rich & powerful do something about the world going to waste.

As if – saving the world – would always be the job of the powerless have-nots-peasants?

As if the rich & powerful are betting there will be golf courses on Mars – if Earth is f***ed.

This is a very risky bet.

As doing that is a mega-project – nobody – not SpaceX – not China – can do alone – just as with climate change – it is a project that mankind has to tackle – together!

But will mankind be able to work together? or indulge in egomaniac luxury senselessness?

FREE SOLAR E-CAR CHARGERS & FREE WIFI FOR ALL “PEASANTS” ON ALL CASTLES AND ALL CHURCHES!

It’s the LEAST they could do.

Crown Estate Scotland goes Windenergy

While it is a good thing, UK-Scotland goes windenergy, the question remains, as with all big energy projects:

  • how can peasants participate in this? (the “have nots” by birth)
  • what is in it for the peasants?
    • cheaper electricity?
    • maybe a reduction in taxes?
    • no?
    • nothing? (again)

The wishful longing for a “Good King & Queen” that “fixes it all”

Good Kings & Queens care bout their people.

Actually that was the idea behind voting for Trump.

But just as Hitler, Trump was no good King, rather behaved like a reckless wracking ball.

Example: The German General Bismarck hated democracy and was loyal to the King, even when the king was incompetent, mismanaged Germany, lost WW1, while giving Bismarck the clever but also ruthless general – the boot (dismissed).

  • Imho all monarchs and dictators of this planet, that feel just a bit responsible for the people & land (which ought to belong to the people too) of whom they derive their wealth
  • shall once a year, publicly transparently, present, if they “did their job” and have acted beneficial to the country – or not (exploitational)
  • sum up: what they took from the country (to buy yachts and castles)
  • and what they have have done for the country
  • to proof they are not – excuse me – feeding on others – living on century old privileges – while living in luxury while others hardly survive the day (yes it is that harsh in an stupid economy of non-sustainability)

WindEnergy: yes please!

  • “The largest of the projects offered is the project for the construction of a floating wind farm with three GW by the Scottish subsidiary of the Spanish energy company Iberdrola, Scottish Power Renewables.
  • This is followed by a 2.9 GW project with foundations rammed into the ground on a similar scale, which the British oil company BP is planning together with the Baden-Württemberg energy supplier EnBW, as well as a 2.6 GW project by the Scottish energy supplier SSE Renewables for a floating wind farm.
  • The Bavarian project planning company Baywa is also involved with a wind farm project of almost one GW with floating turbines.
  • The bids of the project developers include the payment of an option fee to Crown Estate Scotland. (effectively the UK Queen?)
  • The winning bids resulted in such option fees ranging from £10Million for 450 MW to £86million for 2 GW.
  • In total, the bids add up to £700million, which will eventually flow from the authority to the Scottish government.
  • If project developers withdraw a project before the final agreement, the next best project that has not yet been awarded will move forward, as Crown Estate Scotland explains.”

“Crown Estate Scotland is the public corporation of the Scottish Government responsible for the management of land and property in Scotland owned by the monarch in right of the Crown.

The monarch remains the legal owner of these assets

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crown_Estate_Scotland

So the UK is still pretty much in the middle ages, u must be kidding me.

Revenue Increase £1.9 billion (2018) (why not more recent data? afraid of the peasants reaction?)
Increase £329.4 million (2018)[1]
75% to HM Treasury
25% to The Monarch (that is £82.35 million)
AUM Increase £14.3 billion (2018)
Owner Queen Elizabeth II
(in right of The Crown)

    • Elon says “I am not Satoshi Nakamoto” (the “inventor” whitepaper ghost writer of bitcoin) (many people have claimed to be Nakamoto to get famous)
    • What is the current monetary system? (FED, ECB)
      • Elon: “a bunch of mainframes running ancient cobol”
    • What is money?
      • Elon: “a database for resource allocation”
      • comment: yes, that is what money should be and those resources should be allocated in a way that makes sense – sense like: ensure the sustainable (ongoing) survival of mankind – but it is not – it is: whoever is sitting closest to the FIAT money printing press, is getting “rich” (allocates a senseless amount of resources for himself/herself/family while starving the rest of the planet)
      • it is broken broken broken: FED buys “value”papers issued by companies $ 120 billion A MONTH (!) with self-printed money
        • while telling the people “it’s okay” or it will be “temporary” (La Guarde ECB), because the THEORY is: if banks print money and give it to banks for buying stocks (trade paper against paper) there will be no inflation, in 2021/2022 everyone knows: ANOTHER DAMN LIE TO EXPLOIT PEOPLE!
      • Elon falesly (like 99% of all people) think the goverment makes the monetary rules and prints the money, guess what, that is not true, the privilege of seniourage (the right to print money) was taken away from the government (the state) to a “independent” entity, because the government would probably missuse this privilege and print too much money, well exactly what is happening now X-D
        • Old French seigneuriage, “right of the lord (seigneur) to mint money”
    • What is good about bitcoin and fundamentally different to the current monetary system: it is distributed, not centralized (anyone with computers and energy can run it)

First of “good” news:

https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ethiopia-population/

Good news is also, that there are very intelligent farmers in Africa, that try to stop the desert by Zai technique (holes + cattle dung, first plant bushes, than trees, crops can grow in the shade)

Also Africa’s population growth rate is slowing down, but it is still the highest in the world.

Non-sustainable life-styles also in Africa? Yes!

Eucalyptus forests are only natural in Australia, not in Brazil and not in Africa, they are planted by humans, because they grow fast and burn well.

Non-sustainable modes (means: it is going to end) of survival sounds like a problem of “fast-food-obese” developed western post-industrial nations and yes – there is a massive problem there.

But in this case – Africa has the same problem as USA or Europe or (increasingly) China: non sustainable ways of survival that over use of finite resources in an non-recycling non-reuse non-sustainable way.

Dr. Christof Schenck, Frankfurt  is fighting an uphill, almost impossible to win, battle.

He says, that the gov of Ethiopia needs to tell the police to take this matter serious and keep illegal settlers and cattle out of the environmental protection zones.

Will they listen? Surely not. “Because they have a tough time survive the next days” says Dr Schenck, “but if they continue like this, they will destroy the basis of their own survival”

“there is no conflict man vs environment-protection, man will surely lose if we can not rescue the forests of the Bale national park” (Wiki)

“currently we lose 10% of the forests per year”

“we (the West) did not realize the dimensions of this crisis yet”

“40.000 people live illegal in the national park”

“12 million people are dependent downstream from the water of the park”

“we (the West) need to help stabilize Ethiopia”

In the worst case, it would mean: mankind is stupid and a slow learner leading to the Lorax” Problem:

That the majority only starts to realize the problems caused, when the last tree has fallen.

The destruction by exploitation of environment (+China and Russia and USA and EU induced climate change) will lead to droughts and famine, causing millions Africans to flee their home country (nobody likes to flee one’s home country) and knock knock on the barb wire fences of Europe.

Weapons of Mass Migration: another Refugee crisis – this time manufactured by Belarus as reaction on EU sanctions – all refugee crisis solved in 5 minutes

What will Europe do?

  • refugees: “Hurray finally cheap labor” (aka slaves)
    • “What? Slavery is illegal? GO BACK TO AFRICA!”
    • (or stay and work for the Italian Tomato-Mafia with sometimes pay and sometimes no pay)
  • the West needs to lead by example by living more sustainable lifestyle and less like grasshoppers, eat, eat, move on
  • Ethiopia exports a lot of coffee (in contrast to South America, people there drink it) so it is important to pay them a fair price (ask for fair trade coffee and where it is from)

To live sustainability with nature – is possible.

Just as the West needs to transit from fossil fuel addiction to CO2-neutrality

Africa needs to change to sustainable renewable lifestyles (do not cut more trees than grow)

Africa still #1 in Population Growth rate (+2.49% per year)
