  1. I am M.P.’s mother. He would have turned 16 in December. On Sept. 15, the first day of school, he went to the fourth floor of the school building and jumped. He died on Sept. 25. We have lost an intelligent boy who was full of ideas, poetry and love. This inexplicable act leaves us stunned and silent. In my infinite sorrow I find a little consolation in reading his thoughts here ... thanks to those who have shared them with him.

      I am so sorry for your loss, you have my deepest and sincerest sympathy. I will always be grateful that your son wanted to share his thoughts and ideas here with us in this community.

  2. Renewable energy companies have been in a tough situation for more than twenty years (since the beginning of renewables' sector). Two fires, two enemies to fight, the first is the entire fossil fuels' sector, the second is the internal competition in its own sector. The first is a strong, old and rich institution, with thousands of billion of dollars and has exponents like Shell, BP, Total, Exxon and Chevron. The second is also strong and in a long-term can monopolize the entire energy market, it's the internal competition in renewable energy sector, where companies double their profits in les
  3. Debates are good, healthy, and after a debate there’s always a winner. Believe me, in climate change debate action will win, action against the worst environmental crisis of human history, action against a deadly enemy which kills 7 million people a year. Climate change debate landed in Japan after the tragic facts of Fukushima in 2011. After three years Japan is ready to move on (at least the government is). In fact, the Nuclear Regulation Authority vouched last month for the safety of two reactors in Sendai. Still, the proposal of the government depends more and more from the public opinion
  4. This is the worst drought Califronia has ever seen and it's lasting more than three years! California's agriculture is destroyed and the drought is turning the Golden State into a desert. Govern Brown would build an aqueduct from Nevada to California but it's expensive and it takes too much time. Republicans said it's normal,the normal weather of California but there are no precedents of this situation. If this isn't global warming... also California needs to do the ice bucket challenge.
  5. And what a noble act is yours. Apparently bees are attracted by blue, white, yellow or purple flowers, some examples: fuchsia, daisy, sunflower, cosmos, gaillardia, asters. Plant them in a sunny spot where bees will come. Pesticides are out of business, if you have to use them start with the less toxic. Also fruit trees attract them. Regarding the herbs I suggest basil, mint, rosemary, thyme, borage and balm. So, flowers must be well spotted, different colors, different shapes. Good lcuk with the new house and the new garden!
  6. Wonderful project! The idea is very illuminating, to condensate and unite the energies to be competitive in a global scenario. I'm sure they'll complete it in a few years. But that's the North of Europe, another reality, much more efficient than the South. Think to the bridge of Øresund is a massive project. Here in Italy we have many unfinished projects, especially we have a 500 km highway started fifty years ago and it's not finished yet. Returning to high-speed rails we have Turin-Lyon, started a few years ago but on the French side there are no problems, on ours there's the police 24 ho
  7. Today a U.S. reporter was killed by ISIS fighters. Let's hope this madness will finish.

  9. On the old traces of TEN-T project a new high speed rail system could be built basing on the "European corridors". Some high spped rails already exists but are unfinished and non-linear. The main corridors should be five: three verticals, two horizontal. The vertical corridors: 1. Blue. Lisbon-Edimburgh. Lisbon-Madrid-Bordeaux-Paris-through Eurochannel-London-Birminghan-Manchester-Edimburgh-Glasgow. Also another line wich connects Dublin to Belfast. Let's not forget Ireland. 2. Red. Rome-Stockholm with extentions from Naples to Oslo. Naples-Rome-Florence-Bologna-Milan. - The f
  10. It would be a wonderful project, unfortunately we're still waiting the new commission. The TEN-T project failed and the most unsuccessful was Corridor 5 which should have connect Lisbon to Kiev but Portugal and Spain governments had the economical crisis to handle. Italy had no connection with Slovenia and Hungary wanted to invest money in highways. Here's the link for a complete article about that: http://www.voxeurop.eu/en/content/article/2126661-lisbon-kiev-departure-delayed It will be wonderful to restart everything from zero. The idea of Paneuropean Corridors is interesting but wi
  11. Renewable energy companies are just at the beginning but when the shift to renewables will take place would oil giants just go away? In this ranking there are just oil producers or traders. The first renewable company is 31st and is Iberdrola. 1. Exxon Mobil Corporation It's American multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Irving, Texas. A direct and the richest descendant of the famous Stantard Oil company. In 1999 Exxon merged with Mobil forming the biggest energy company in the world. It's the biggest company in the world and guilty of one of the worst oil spills in histo
  12. China is expanding in renewable energy market. Suntech is a Chinese company and one of the biggest in the renewable sector. It has delivered more than 13,000,000 solar panels to thousands of companies in more than 80 countries around the world including Google. It has a revenue of $3.15 billion and the competition against China lower prices is very weak right now.
  13. Here's an alternative to biofuels: Electrofuels. Current biofuel production methods are intensive and require additional resources, such as water, fertilizer, and large areas of land to grow crops. Electrofuels bypass photosynthesis altogether by utilizing microorganisms that are self-reliant and don't need solar energy to grow or produce biofuels. These microorganisms can directly use energy from electricity and chemical compounds like hydrogen to produce liquid fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2). Because these microorganisms can directly use these energy sources, the overall efficiency of th
  14. Tesla Motors has few rivals in a sector which is quite new. And their cars are very beautiful althought its CEO is a strong opponent of hydrogen cells. This expansion seems very strong, we'll see where this is going...
  15. Thanks! The day I took the picture there was a wonderful light.
