    All Lives Matter

    There was the loudest boom and the vibration of the entire floor , when the tree across from my house fell. The storm that caused this was minor compared to others and still the damage was laying in a pile the next morning.

The age of the tree not known to me but I’m guessing that it’s about 50 years old and in this area seen more than its worth of crime. The fallen ones of this community are adding up daily. Murder and mischief is well known to this little neighborhood and I have only lived here for less than a year.

In Germany it is mined in huge surface mines where it supplies power plants located nearby to reduce transport costs.], which together generate 38% of the current. With 7 reactors still in service, the atom provides 13.3% of electricity production. In 2010, before the decision to exit from nuclear power, its share was 22%

    Belgium: nuclear power puts wind turbines off

    Belgium: nuclear power puts wind turbines off

    Since last March, the spectacular drop in electricity consumption linked to the coronavirus has led to an overabundance of nuclear electricity on the Belgian market.
