    ^ Sums up the European mentality, which is creeping into Canada.

    Make rules, lots of rules, even if they're pointless. Just make sure there's a lot of unnecessary bureaucracy to navigate so that some poor suckers need to be paid to create and navigate it.

    Exactly what the eco terrorists want, people freezing to death.

    Germany pens a 15-year deal with Qatar for LNG.

    What a missed opportunity for Canada.

    Just 10 more years until our first one is built and running. So close.
    So reconcile, though.

    What is it about "No Business Case" that you don't understand?

    Yup, its tough to get around energy limitations.

    Some say that Canada supplying Germany would be more like trying to run an electrical power line from Toronto to Berlin - just plain silly.

    Although I've mentioned before, it makes more sense for the USA to burn wood for rocket fuel in Houston, than it does to burn diesel to ship wood chips to Europe. If you scientifically believe in efficiency of production of energy. Globally speaking, Artemis should be powered by burning wood (converted to electricity and then hydrogen) if you want to maximize efficiency based on energy production and shipping losses. Germany still burns 6% wood for home heating in the rural areas.



    The number of trees you would have to burn to make it to the moon would be a political scandal.

    BTW: I'm pretty sure the "waste" slash piles are simply being dried naturally, as its much more efficient to transport a half dried log than a green one. Its still stupidly expensive energywise if it ends up in europe though. Never understood anyone who spent a full tank of diesel ($200?) to drive to BC forest to get a load of wood, pure insanity.

    Burn natural gas to extract oilsands to pipeline to Texas to refine into diesel to ship back to Canada to put into pickup truck to drive to forest to pickup wood (to put on diesel boat to ship to Europe, to burn wood, to create heat)
