Germany’s Fossil Fueled Decarbonisation

German car firms have been hit by recent emission fraud scandals

and the appearance of the electric car:

But where are these new cars going to get their electricity?

Britain’s relying on China and France to deliver the Hinkley Point Nuclear power station as no British firm has put itself forward.

And UK gas prices are going up despite global oil and gas prices being extremely low.

So seeing as Chancellor Merkel has banned the generation of Nuclear power following Fukushima,

Germans could soon find themselves in decarbonised driverless Teslas that run on fossil fuel and French nuclear generated power.

 

 

 

 

God Save our Unforgettable Mall

Here we are crawling the cracks between walls of church state school & factory, all the paranoid monoliths. Cut off from the tribe by feral nostalgia we tunnel after lost words, imaginary bombs.

No Drought – Trump Shorts Marijuana but Vets Already Blaze

Jamaica is only allowed to legally grow Marijuana now that it is already well established in US law. US firms have been granted licence to grow and experiment in Jamaica.

 

Vulture Capitalists, Potash Mining, GM, Fertilisers, Brexit & UK Food

For some reason Food and Brexit doesn’t get discussed in the news but as many of us will wind up eating food from fertilisers I think it’s worth a mention.

When Vulture Capitalists start talking about ousting fatcat CEOs because they are overspending on entering fertiliser markets that looks like a sign that food prices are going up in the not too distant future.

What else can be gleaned from this?

I am much more interested in this than I normally would be thanks to the work of Public Interest Researcher Helena Paul who has commented on the link between Agri-Business and War.

 

Real Media interviewed Helena for Real Media earlier this summer:

Explosives & Explosions : The Haber Process

Roughly forty minutes into this great podcast, Tim Harford talks about the significance of the Haber Process.

The Haber Process revolutionised the world of explosives in World War One before being used in many of the world’s fertilisers — fueling the population explosion.

With no TV Debate – Manifestos do the Talking

When the facts change I change my mind. What do you do, Sir?  J.M Keynes.

In a time of Information Overload, the Info-Arbitrageur is King.

Tim Shipman of the Times refers to the increasingly decreasing gap between Tories and Labour. There’s no hiding the fact the Tories are dumping it.

Theresa May decriminalises Bribery, Fraud & Election Rigging

The American satirist HL Mencken famously quipped that no-one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American people.

But here in Britain we have a different maxim:

No Tory ever lost out overestimating the gullibility of the British Voter

I interviewed David Whyte of the University of Liverpool about various aspects of corruption last week.

He called for an investigation into allegations  the Tory party has received funding from laundered HSBC money.

Yesterday the Conservative Manifesto included proposals to scrap the Serious Fraud Office :

Tories are also proposing that all voters provide ID cards to vote – a move which has been criticised by the Electoral Commission which itself recently concluded that the Tories themselves broke electoral rules regarding local spending limits in the 2015 election.

The Tories got away with this and are now seeking to undermine the smooth running of future elections.

This is the sort of thing you expect from Turkey, Russia, or even Iran.

May is very scary. I cannot emphasise enough what  a bad idea it would be to vote for her.
