If you think a$$holes like Putin let pious speeches stop them from invading other countries then dream on.
I DID vote them.

Headline of the decade: Germany is building what's expected to become Europe's largest military. Perhaps decade is still too little. Of the century.

And it happens while I was eligible to vote. I am ashamed of my country.

After all, I've always been thinking that the Red-Greens were already responsible for the Kosovo war, the first war of aggression in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany that violated international law and the constitution.

So who else, if not them.

I did NOT vote for them.

I agree with Herr Schönbach, Admiral of the German Navy.

The whole relationship with Russia has been a lost opportunity.  Hemming Russia in with NATO membership is a huge act of disrespect.  And frankly, quite unnecessary for the security of these countries.  Will the gains to the USA in the form of increased weapons exports and agricultural export surpass the costs and the risk of blow back?

The relationship with the Ukraine has been gaffe-ridden from the beginning.   Bringing the Ukraine closer to Europe and moving in the direction of a European political and economic model could have been done without alienating Russia.

If we Germans buy natural gas in Russia and then use it to heat here, then the CO2 emissions count on Germany's account.

If we tell the Russians we only buy hydrogen, they then burn their natural gas themselves and use it to make hydrogen, give it to us and we heat with it, then the CO2 emissions are in Russia and we have achieved our climate goals!

Yes, no shit. That's the background. We are sitting here on the Titanic, everyone is aware that the ship is sinking, and they are now doing a bit of emissions cosmetics so that at the end of their already foreseeable failed term in office they can say that they have reduced our emissions.
 
I actually agree with you here. Though it must also be seen as a first step towards truly green gases. Eine sub-optimale Lösung by all means but maybe a step towards a better result down the road. Nevertheless, it's hard to escape the feeling of too little too late.

Germany Swaps Nuclear for Solar and Wind Power

by Oliver Lazenby
YES! Magazine
June 7, 2012

In response to the Fukushima meltdown—which did $50 billion in damage to Japan’s economy—Germany aims to close all its reactors by 2022.


Germany, the world’s most aggressive adopter of renewable energy, is taking a bold leap toward a future free from nuclear energy. In March, the German government announced a program to invest 200 billion euros, or approximately $270 billion, in renewables. That’s 8 percent of the country’s GDP, according to the DIW Economic Institute in Berlin.

Last year, in response to the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a plan to close down all 17 of Germany’s nuclear reactors and replace them with renewable energy, mostly solar and wind power.

Germany has already closed eight nuclear reactors, and the rest will be shut down by 2022. For now, natural gas is filling the void left by nuclear power, which formerly produced 20 percent of the country’s electricity. Under Merkel’s plan, 80 percent of Germany’s energy will come from renewables by 2050, according to the German Advisory Council on the Environment. Studies by the council show that 100 percent renewable power is a realistic goal for Germany.

In contrast, the United States has been much less ambitious. The president’s “New Energy for America” plan aims to supply the country with 25 percent renewable energy by 2025...

 



 
The Anti Atom movement in Germany startet 1972 in south west Germany, when the Club of Rome planed nuclear reactors and lead chemical plant in the area "Kaiserstuhl", between Freiburg im Br, and Markolsheim in France. It became a massive movement accross the border between France and Germany, which is the Rhein. The winegrowers could not ignore this plan. My own Father, who died last month, was a main actrivist and singer songwriter in this movement. He was a real local hero, because the planed reactor in Whyl never was built. The movement succeded, in a hard dispute. The nucler oppenents used a pirate radio, which broadcasted across the French-German-Swiss borders. First it was called: "Radio Grün (Green)", and later changed its name to "Radio Dreyeckland (Triangle Country)", which still exists. https://rdl.de/live. The resistance against the nuclear industry was the primeval mud for the green party in germany.

Germanwings crash: airliners change cockpit rules after co-pilot blamed – as it happened | World news | The Guardian

Here are the major developments in the aftermath and investigation of the Germanwings crash in the French Alps that killed 150 people.

  • Lubitz deployed a five-minute override when captain Patrick Sonderheimer tried to re-enter the cockpit after briefly leaving, thwarting Sonderheimer’s attempt to punch in an emergency number that would open the door.
  • Lufthansa revealed that Lubitz’s training in 2009 had been briefly interrupted, but was resumed after “his suitability as a candidate was re-established”. Asked about the reason for the interruption, Spohr said he was not allowed to say.
  • Spohr said the company was in complete shock. It was “beyond our worst nightmare”, he said. “It leaves us absolutely speechless. I would not have been able to imagine that the situation would have got even worse.” (...)

OK, als gebürtiger Kölner darf, nein, MUSS man ja Kölsch trinken und mögen ;)
Ich, als gebürtiger Düsseldorfer, kann wie gesagt mit Altbier nicht sooo viel anfangen, aber naja, ab und zu sage ich auch nicht nein zu ´nem Alt, genau wie zu ´nem Kölsch.

Es gibt halt zu viel gutes Bier in Deutschland :)
( so ein ASTRA wäre auch nicht falsch )

RP fand ich vor einigen Jahren per Shoutcast.com ( damals sah die Seite noch nicht so schrecklich nach Web 2.0 aus wie heute ) als ich einen Sender suchte, der R.E.M. spielte.
Wie es der Zufall wollte, war es just in dem Moment RP. Und der Rest verlief dann wie vielen anderen Hörern...eingeschaltet, in die Favoriten gelegt und annähernd täglich eingeschaltet.
Mal nur für 20 Minuten oder an anderen Tagen bis zu 10 Stunden im Büro ( mein Kollege bettelt schon immer, dass ich gefälligst "diesen Paradissender" einschalten soll ).

Hab mir extra einen Webstick i.V.m. einem Netbook und 2 Boxen besorgt, damit ich auch im Büro Webradio hören kann. Über UKW gibt es hier nur noch WDR2 als erträgliche Alternative...aber natürlich nur was die Wortbeiträge angeht.
Neben RP läuft dort eigentlich nur SomaFM, wenn ich mal meine elektronischen Gelüste befriedigen muss. {#Dancingbanana}
