Re: Calling for a fuel boycott

Doctor, I like the idea, but no. A kayak.

Some people "Need a car" to get to work. HOw far away from work or from a public transport point, does one live before needing a car instead of walking or cycling? And what are the factors involved for various people: time?distance? the weather? the big hill along the way?

Is it a thread for random comments an inacurate affirmations?
It's U238, and there less than 100 years of supply of it
If so then you would win the prize. U235 is used in conventional fission reactors. U238 in fast breeders. Natural occuring Uranium is more than 99% U238 and that isn't used for very much at the moment except for military purposes (for shells as it's seriously dense/heavy, not in nucs) and in the very few fast breeders currently about.

There is about 80 proven years of U235 supply. However the industry is highly confident there is a lot more to be found, particularly as no-one really looked for it from the 70s until a couple of years ago. Hence the 200 to 600 year estimate I wrote above. Thorium would roughly triple that and U238 would extend that many times over.

Whether we should be using that is a complete other question.

As I said before, I KNOW people in the industry.

Me love my V8 grand cherokee too, however I find that if I mix my transport, car, motorbike, train, walk, I only need to fill it up once or twice a month.
It is also nice to fill up in Germany and get the MwSt. back.
I can get 250-300-ish klicks out a full bike tank.
And yes, we will see 2 Chuff a liter as being the good old days very soon.

???? how do you get that back? cause i need to go through Germany again very soon.


And I drive an audi s4 avant with the 4.2L V8
I love it when a sporty car pulls up next to me (my car is completely debadged, meaning no s4 badges) and they want to race.....not knowing there is 344 horses under the hood and I go from 0-100 in 5.7 seconds IN A STATIONWAGON hahaha

Unproven finds are just that. They might be there, they might not. You don't base an energy policy on optimistic forecasts by 'people in the industry'. What do you expect they're going to tell you?

Ha! Ha! love to see their faces, to get MwSt back? A tad tricky, get the filling station to sign the forms (tell em you want the MwSt back and they will know) dont forget to take your ID papers go to the border have the (in this case German) Zoll stamp the papers go back to the filling station and get your money back.

Enjoy your evenings drinks bought by the Germans.
