Yep, sadly. Any alternative to fossil fuels is a win but this seems a bit pie in the sky:

Controversy
Critics claim a lack of scientific understanding or patents describing how water with metallic salts can be used to produce electric energy with the efficiency and energy density that the company claims.[18] The claimed performance seemed to contradict research that has been done on flow batteries.[19] It has been said that "there is no solid proof just yet that the QUANT e actually works and performs as advertised".[20]

The Quant 48 Volt delivers 560 kW at 48 V, with 140 kW going to each motor.[21] This means the current going to each motor is equal to 2917 Amps which would heat up the cable dramatically. The company fails to explain how it is solved.

That said, many claimed, and some still do claim, that Tesla was a pie in the sky pyramid scheme pipe dream ;)

Tesla and SpaceX have some common thing: they don´t wait for miraculous new technology to solve things.

Why beer and crisps could be secret weapons in the battle to tackle climate change

https://news.sky.com/story/why-beer-and-crisps-could-be-secret-weapons-in-the-battle-to-tackle-climate-change-12153936

 

Beer manufacturing usually produces a high level of carbon dioxide, but a new technique will harness and turn it into plant food.

To be fair, it looks like I've been doing my bit since march :lol:

The EU’s Earth observation programme, Copernicus, announced on Monday that this year’s November was the hottest ever recorded. Climate researchers are calling on politicians to do more in the fight against climate change.

 

November 2020 was the hottest November ever on record, announced Copernicus, the EU’s Earth observation programme on Monday. According to their findings, November 2020 was 0,8 degrees warmer than the 30-year average from 1981 to 2010. It was also around 0,1 degrees hotter than the previous record November in 2016.

 

This record month of November comes just after another record month: September, also the hottest September since records began. “These records are in line with the long-term warming trend of the global climate,” said Carlo Buontempo, head of Research on Climate Change at Copernicus.

An enormous iceberg is heading toward South Georgia Island in the southern Atlantic, where scientists say a collision could devastate wildlife by threatening the food chain.

Scientists have long been watching this climate-related event unfold, as the iceberg - about the same size as the island itself – has meandered and advanced over two years since breaking off from the Antarctic peninsula in July 2017.

 

The peninsula is one of the fastest-warming places on Earth, registering a record high temperature of 20.75 degrees Celsius (69.35 degrees Fahrenheit) on Feb. 9. The warming has scientists concerned about ice melt and collapse leading to higher sea levels worldwide.

 

 

the rest

 

Oh, and South Georgia Island is part of the British Empire. :P

So the iceberg did a 180 in strong currents and clipped the shelf edge.

I've never stalked an iceberg before.

I just read that the rainy season begins in California a full month later than it did in 1960 and it will only get worse.

'Ice in that part of the world but climate change isn't happening' said one ostrich to the other..

It's all just a big joke, didn't you know, mate - or are you just plain stupid? :P

 

Climate change doesn't affect me, you are all a bunch of dimwits panicking and predicting doom - just like Brexit! ;)

 

The greatest witch-hunt in history! :angry:

 

My advice: go outside, talk a walk and get some fresh air 🤡
