""Unfortunately, the nameplate capacity trumpeted in the media is a drastically misleading measure of the electricity added to the grid. While wind and solar nameplate capacity represented 84 percent of Germany’s average electric power generation of 70.4 GW, it ultimately generated only 11.9 percent of total electricity (up from 11.2 percent in 2011). There are simple reasons for that discrepancy: night, cloud, and calm. The output of wind and solar generators varies wildly with weather and the time of day; during most hours they produce a small fraction of their nameplate power—or nothing at all."" http://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/green-energy-bust-in-germany

Green Energy Bust In Germany (Summer 2013) See this article: It's old but points out wrong info from Green media on Germany's status. Doubtful any big change in just a year. Pump it up so others can see the divergence of facts. ""But statistics on Germany’s electricity sector for the whole of 2012 are now in, and when you look beyond the cherry-picked hype, the results are dismal and disquieting. ... Germany is indeed avoiding blackouts—by opening new coal- and gas-fired plants. Renewable electricity is proving so unreliable and chaotic that it is starting to undermine the stability of the European grid and provoke international incidents. The spiraling cost of the renewables surge has sparked a backlash, including government proposals to slash subsidies and deployment rates."" http://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/green-energy-bust-in-germany

Hey toad! I don't have a lot of time. I'd be buying a tankful by Tuesday, maybe Thursday of next week the latest. I'm sure it'll be up by 14 to 22 cents or more. While I'm thinking about it, and while I have a few moments, I thought I'd share this with you. A video I took of a rainbow about three years ago. I never uploaded it until now. Hope you enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJKd8Xq1pMw Feel free to share it to others on Facebook or Twitter or where ever else. Have a great day and weekend. Oh, I'm looking for a job, so wish me well on the job hunt! I need a job badly!

If you were a retired union truck driver, then what are you now?

Toad! How ya been? As you know, I'm generally spot on with the gas prices going up or down. Quickly and I'm gonna ask you and others to pass it on to everyone as I just don't have the time to do it this time. We might go back up on gas, or rather, WE WILL shortly by about six to 12 cents a gallon minimum with a strong probability of going back up 14 to 22 cents a gallon, possibly even more. In the midwest and the west coast, mountain states, Alaska and Hawaii, I expect the price jumps to be more. It's coming just in-time for the holiday you know!
