It's generation capacity is ~3,030 MW (that's about 5 avg. sized coal plants 🏭).

With a storage capacity of 24,000 MWh (the output of ~40 avg. sized coal plants 🏭) / 2

In my confidential report commissioned by the Governor of #Ohio, Dick Celeste, I warned that Ohio #nuclear plants would impoverish bill payers and cause industry to flee the state. The year was 1985. And so it went. wsj.com/articles/ohio-… #Environment #GreenEnergy #Pollution
This week, the #Ohio GOP toadies to the power industry will try to pass another billion dollar bailout to throw down the radioactive rathole. Three decades of bankrupting #nuclear plant operation in the shadow of #Fukushima shows the politicos have gone from dumb to dumber.
And for those who believe #nuclear energy is green & clean, I invite you to visit uranium mines in Niger, the Congo, and the Acoma pueblo in New Mexico. The only thing green about nuclear power is the plume of dollars flying out the cooling towers! theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

@Keeper_86 @reclamatioet @tagesschau a) Und womit belegen Sie diese Aussagen?
Ich: 1. Ja die Erde wird wärmer (kommen auch aus einer kleinen #Eiszeit), 2. ja der Mensch hat AUCH einen Einfluss (vorallem aber bei Vermüllung & Resourcenvernichtung), 3. Aber...
@Keeper_86 @reclamatioet @tagesschau b) 3. Aber dieser Einfluss wird von #Lobbygruppen hochgespielt, weil mit #GreenEnergy & #CO2Steuern (jetzt schon in #SüdAfrika, bald in #Deutschland) viele Milliarden verdient wird!
#Klimawandel #CO2 #FridaysForFurture
@Keeper_86 @reclamatioet @tagesschau c) Nur so kann man den deutschen #Verbraucher mit den teuersten #Strom der Welt verkaufen (1 oder 2 Staaten ein Tick teurer, #Frankreich hat nur 30% unserer Stromkosten) & ihn weiter abzocken.

@polenz_r Aber warum benutzt Ihr dann nicht die #Wissenschaftlich, sondern erlaubt der #ClimateChange-#Lobby ein Kind mit Aspergers für ihre Zwecke zu missbrauchen?
#GrethaThunberg #FridaysForFurture
@polenz_r Und das das Greta-Phänomen von langer Hand geplant war und dann stark gepuscht wurde, wurde spätestens klar mit den schnellen Auftritten bei dem #WEF, dann bei #Juncker in #Brüssel, dann ein Papstbesuch!

DAS ist kein adhoc Youth-movement!

#GrethaThunberg #FridaysForFurture
@polenz_r 3. Am Ende geht es um knallharte Interessen: #GreenEnergy ist Milliarden wert und der teuerste #Strom Europas lässt sich nicht ohne "big Emotion" verkaufen.

#GretaThunberg ist ein "hard sell" für Dummies!

16 yrs ago today, the US-led invasion of Iraq began. All this time later, we’re still stuck in two seemingly endless wars. As I recently laid out, our troops & our nation deserve better. There are so many steps we can take to ensure our military remains the strongest in the world
Despite the President’s latest proposal, we can’t just keep throwing together huge defense budgets every year & think that’s enough.
Our power abroad stems from our strength here on U.S. soil. It’s past time we recognize that funding our domestic priorities—like education, healthcare and green energy—actually bolsters our national security.

@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl Reality-Check: #Germany has 1% of the global population & wants to safe the #earth by charging among the higest #energy-prices on earth? Sounds more like a bunch of idiots allowing themselves to be ripped off big time!
#GreenEnergy #ClimateChange #Klimawandel - Part 1
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 2. At the same time Germans happily use their #iPhones, produced in #China by near slave-labour under conditions that are far from green.

German #Chemical companies happily produce in #Shaoxing, #China with a pollution (I have seen it) which takes your breath away! #Bayer #BASF
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 3. And the missionaries of #ClimateChange & #GreenEnergy, like @LeoDiCaprio, are the biggest jokes: Talking about climate change, but leaving a carbon foot-print the size of a village, with their #yachts, private #jets & several #villas with several servants! #ABigCon!

@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 1. Various questions need to be asked:
a) Is the #earth getting warmer? Answer Yes (but was ven warmer in the past)
b) Human impact on climate (CO2)? A: Yes, but science differ on size of impact.
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 2.
c) #Germany produces 2% of all CO2 - So if we all live in tents tomorrow & only ride bicycles will it make a big difference? A: No, but the Chinese & Americans won't stop laughing!
#AnneWill #Klimawandel #ClimateChange
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 3.
So I like a debate on points a) to c) purely based on #science (and "a consensus of paid lobbyscientists" is not science, but politics) & come up with workable solutions.
PS: Currently #China produces around 26% of all man-made CO2.

Great points on #BitcoinMining energy consumption by @aantonop:
1. Energy used by Fiat #currencies are hidden yet enormous;
2. #Bitcoin incentivises #greenenergy via economic benefits to #energycompanies as a store of value for non-distributable energy.

With Fiat currencies we're not questioning the costs of global payment networks, data centres for payment services providers and banks, their office buildings, computers, printing/minting/transportation of notes/coins and so on. It's taken for granted.
The latter, where unused energy of wind/solar that exceeds battery storage capacity can produce #Bitcoin, thus shortening the return on investment of renewable energy. This return can then be used to reinvest in real energy storage capacity.
