    I dont think id trust button pushers with a nuclear power plant.

    "Can't get the power steering hard line into the soft line."
    "Just push it in harder."

    ...becomes...

    "Can't get the control rods into the reactor."
    "Just push it in harder."

    The whole world should've gone Nuclear Power 30 years ago but you get Chernobyl which made people shy away and bitch fit activists start up about it.

    the way forward is solar, wind is pointless as its intermittent but if they could develop the tech to harness solar properly and I'm talking on earth and eventually in orbit around earth one day and then I'm drawing a blank on the name of the design, but basically orbital solar platforms surrounding the sun harnessing the majority of energy in our own galaxy.

    But since people are dumb (sheep), I'm sure we won't get close to the possibilities solar can generate in our life time, and with how people normally are i reckon we'd be lucky to see a decent nuclear power station system even running in Australia in our life times.

    Btw as for global warming, here's my 2 cents, Sun is in highly active state for several years with a larger amount of solar flares etc, world gets hot, ice melts, sun's active state declines to a less active state then it has been for the last several years, world cools down, ice comes back.

    Big glowing ball of hot shit in the sky, does more shit then does less shit, rinse and repeat, global warming/cooling.

    That makes the most sense of anything to me personally but meh, im bored at work and wanted to make a post about something.

    Sorry M - your wrong. Recently the greenhouse gas modelling used has been proved inaccurate by as much a as a factor of 5x over inflation of the effect of Carbon Dioxide on global warming. The science no longer backs man made global warming. The most likely primary cause of global warming is sunspot / solar activity.

    The way forward is hydrogen. The single most abundant element in the universe - bar none.

    hey, I think that peak oil and climate change will cancel each other out. :D

    Whichever way you bake it NOx and VW are actually still the crux of the entire thread...

    unfortunately hydrogen on earth of fairly rare.
    the hydrogen in water is costly to separate.

    Most of it comes from Natural Gas, just like CO2 for beverages and other commercial applications. Even Alcohol (Ethanol) comes from there too. We can say Natural Gas is the "New Oil".


    As far solar power... that still light years away to make a cost effective and efficient system. At least try to use solar power for your house, is not easy and cost prohibited.

    Another thing that I read was the mining of the Moon for H3 (Helium 3). The moon surface is littered with it, from millions of years bombarded by the sun. Look it up, very interesting read.

    Something like this... Harnessing shit loads of energy from our star, Sol, more commonly referred to as the Sun.

    That 'alien megastructure' might be a lopsided star - Tech Insider

    [​IMG]

    But it wouldn't "harness the majority of energy in our own Galaxy (the Milky Way) as that's made up of billions of stars!

    A Dyson Sphere that's what i was looking for, and more referring to within our own local system, one Dyson sphere theoretically would power all of earth in its current state forever or until the sun explodes.

    Yes Raj, I was making a sarcastic remark with the Sucking part of the Vacuum Cleaner.

    I know was about an energy test.

    On the serious side... is an UK company and they cannot do a simple energy consumption test? Why using a German company? Outsourcing?

    Anyway, is the Germans fault.

    Shame that they think they are above the law.

    You don't need to agree with a law to comply.

    The thing that will make VW smile is this.

    I expected that from them, they are part of the VW group and share the same technology.

    Was a matter of time the media get their hands on it.
