Natural gas is available from many renewable sources. It also releases 50% less carbon per unit of energy produced compared to coal. Considering natural gas is a powerful greenhouse gas on it's own, recovered natural gas burning plants could feasibly have a negative effect on greenhouse gases, which is the main point of the goal of carbon reduction to begin with.
I'd rather encourage a baby to crawl than belittle it for not being able to sprint.
Memphis is in the process of bringing online a brand new natural gas plant. A "Carbon Free" city aint gonna happen in my life time.
It is worthwhile to walk back thru the circumstances leading up to one getting caught in the middle of a riot.
But in the moment described as being surrounded by a angry people with fire and bats (curiously where are all the guns Americans have) in which others hypothetically put themselves in accompanied by multiple generations of family members, one could reasonably consider driving thru. To first deny this human reaction, tends to hinder deeper discussion into the whys and wherefores this all began
Suffering from insomnia?? Take EPITOME!
Seems pretty thoughtful to me. Of course, I would understand if you chose to stop in the middle of those rioting protesters. Perhaps you could whip out your progressive credentials and they would not attack you or your family. From what I saw on the TV, It does seem they would be inclined to listen to reason.
Me, I drive on.
If Professor Goober meant to be pithy, he should have added an emoji or something. He had only used 19 characters to that point. He could have clarified things with an eggplant, or a smiley poop. An American flag. Something. I don't know.
And Congress will dance to Trump's one-note tune as long as he fiddles.
As you do when you drive into a crowd of people. Or when you post not very thoughtful things on the Internet.
I dunno. If I am trying to drive somewhere with my family and the road is blocked with people holding clubs in their hands, I would not try to run them over. I would not stop, either.
If you are out rioting in the middle of the road where you do not belong, you take your chances.
Or, as an alternative to abstinence only, you might consider just not inciting people to run over other people in their cars.
On one hand you have a guy who has put blood sweat and tears into a dream he is passionate about and believes in for almost 10 years. On the other hand you have the people that he has been pitching to who have obviously been inspired by his ideas. And when the power brokers came to town with their big bags of money and influence they just sweep him out of the way. Both plans center around the Cossitt, arts and culture, and the space that they projects would utilize.The two plans are so similar one would have to wonder if the Civic Commons group didn’t just take Johnathan’s work and redesign their document. They even included a picture of him in their plan, no doubt big middle finger to him.
When will Memphis learn to truly invest in our own creatives? Im am once again ashamed of you Memphis. I am ashamed of our leaders and people involved who don’t recognize that you should be celebrating and enabling a visionary like Johnathan. This truly saddens me. Shame on you. You know you are.
Anyone that has seen the live footage of the riotous crowds pulling, robbing, beating, killing innocent bystanders, people in their cars, trucks... I would seriously consider doing exactly the same thing if my life, my families lives were endangered!
The GOP never admits it is wrong. It would never remove Trump. If it were willing to admit it was wrong, he wouldn't be the nominee.
Mr. Kirkscey has been working passionately and tirelessly toward the redevelopment of the Cossitt and its surrounding area for almost the entire past decade - long before downtown's revitalization. Especially in light of this context, *his* plan is truly visionary. The fact that his idea appears to have been all but blatantly plagiarized by certain city players while, simultaneously, he seems to have been shut out of the conversations is deeply troubling. The back door deals, lack of public input and due process as well as the lack of transparency which continue to marr city administration, past and present, have got to end if Memphis truly wants to establish itself as a top-tier city. This especially applies to the (re)development, and conversely, to the preservation of public assets. Memphis and its powers-that-be need more forward-thinking people like Mr. Kirkscey and - importantly - to listen, encourage and support them in their endeavors.
OK. Everyone out there who is a professional. Listen to me. If you have a Twitter account, or a Facebook account, go to your computer RIGHT NOW and delete it. Try to get whatever information you have about yourself off of the Net. Just do it. Nothing good is going to come of the internet gossip machine. Basking in its glory is like warming your hands over a pile of plutonium. Seriously. Now. Do it.
It's Thursday, time for my paranoia to peak. For a few decades it has seemed to me that late in the campaign, one candidate in Presidential elections does something particularly stupid or suddenly and silently backs away from a critical juncture in the contest, thereby assuring victory for the other side. By some political physic this tactic has become more blatant and bizarre over time until the bizarre has become routine.
Trump cannot now say or do anything so outrageous that would throw the election.
Clinton can promise progressive rainbows and be believed despite never having delivered one.
We are left with only with the option of sitting back and hoping that the inevitable 2020 Michelle v Ivanka contest will be more substantive.
Bruce, but they've done such a bang-up job of "controlling" Trump so far, haven't they?
Allan, the idea that Trump will be "controlled" or made to toe the line by the GOP congress is a pretty common one among his reluctant GOP supporters.
