Working on my next prediction for the timeline, it looks like fossil fuels could be around until as late as 2090, even with strong growth in renewables.

    That was a ramble. This is better. Emissions may not be a problem at some point but extraction methods still are. For profit companies are not incentivized to care and that's how we get coal companies blowing the tops off mountains in Appalachia.

    If it’s because each fuel type has pros and cons that makes sense to me.

    In a case like Sri Lanka with few fossil fuels, it made sense to use solar early on despite its relatively high cost in most other countries. I can imagine a nation like Russia using mineral oil for a long time to come owing to their own circumstance.

Tesla Gigafactory Europe to be built in Germany, not UK, as Elon Musk blames Brexit uncertainty https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/tesla/108395/tesla-gigafactory-europe-to-be-built-in-germany-not-uk-as-elon-musk-blames-brexit

    I would do the same thing. We have heard similar things from other companies, but I wonder how many other global businesses have made similar decisions without making it public. There is a large amount of invisible lost investment since the Brexit referendum.

    Indeed. Brexit has already cost the UK an estimated £66bn since the referendum. That's more than our cost of EU membership.

    That's equivalent to the US economy taking a hit of $488bn.

    I think he commented on one of my posts not too long ago, or perhaps I am confusing him with somebody else. At any rate, I fear all of the libertarians are running out of energy. Sorry about that :)

    Lucky old Northern Ireland, eh? Maybe the rest of the UK could benefit too? And then join the other countries with free movement and the single market? We could call it something like... I dunno, the Union of Europe, or something?

The Times reports that Downing Street is suspected by unnamed sources of suppressing a parliamentary report into Russian interference because it contains "embarrassing" disclosures about the Kremlin links of wealthy Russian donors to the Conservative Party https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/no-10-fears-embarrassment-of-report-into-russian-influence-qknm85j82

    Nonsense, Corbyn is the Russian supporter, after all he loves socialism and those Russian billionaire oligarchs are obviously all socialists, they've just stolen billions from their people as a cover.

    but seriously though, it would probably be easier to launder money through London if they could ignore EU laws while doing so, so it makes sense fort them to support brexit.

    In style, it reminds me of Palmer Luckey and his "Anduril" startup, that aims to use VR and AI to help border patrol target illegal immigrants like with Terminator vision. Anduril is the name of the sword wielded by Aragorn in Lord of the Rings. Might be an appropriate name for a weapon used against the hordes of Mordor; but not impoverished, barely-hanging-on families south of the border.
