As I recall, they killed a couple. So.........does anyone else see the contradiction in this?
I can't imagine that I ever would have googled all of the details that Scott put into this explanation.
I'm much better informed about both El Nino and La Nina, and the cause and effect of both.
What is the solution to the problem that we have all watched in it's development for so many years.
Our school systems have become polluted. By what? Lord help me, I don't know, but I know when an apple smells rotten, and this one is.
Of course.......he was stealing........and that is not a joke.
Funny they didn't bust him for the middle finger part. That seems to be taken so seriously, now days.
Seems that if you re designed and re built some with modern metals and designs
and coupled that with new heat sources (nuclear?) that you could produce some pretty significant energy. Alas.....my field was computers........but maybe some modern engineer might........
I'm off to bed, old friend.
See you again, soon, I hope.
I hadn't considered the heating value, but I suppose "modern" stoves might burn without too much pollution.
If I have to breath coal smoke, I would prefer it to be issuing from a steam locomotive.
Boy would I like to see one of those Big Boys again. Heck.......I'd settle for a Pacific, even.
Yeah.........trains are cool.
From what I have seen on a few walks, and driving by the tracks and the bridge at Cushman.......they are going to have to make some serious upgrade to the track.
When I first read about the project a few weeks ago, I was flabbergasted, frankly.
But.....I suppose if they pour some real money into the project, we may have a huge number of very long trains passing through. I wonder if they are going to put on special engines.......a Dash 9 would be a hoot.
Well.....speculating (and rambling, I fear).
My best to you old friend,
But.......I suspect that my neighbors are not going to be happy, and I also suspect that it won't do much for property values along Hwy 36.
Just to share a thought.
In my opinion, no nation or government on this planet has the right to tell people that they cannot grow and personally use any plant........repeat ANY plant.
I will never subject myself to such an invasion of my personal rights.
And......I'm willing to stand up to any judge and say so.........regardless of consequences.
