"- Frank Kaminski, strength Bulletin

Coal fuels approximately 50% people electrical energy construction and offers 1 / 4 of the country’s overall power. China and India’s ferocious monetary progress relies on coal-generated electricity.

Coal presently appears like an answer to lots of our fast-growing power difficulties. although, whereas coal advocates are urging complete steam forward, expanding reliance at the dirtiest of all fossil fuels has an important implications for weather technology, strength coverage, the area economic system, and geopolitics.

Drawbacks to a coal-based power technique include:
• Scarcity—new stories end up that the height of usable coal construction may very well be under twenty years away.
• Cost—the caliber of produced coal is declining, whereas the fee of shipping is emerging, resulting in spiralling bills and strength shortages.
• weather impacts—our skill to accommodate the historical problem of weather switch may possibly hinge on decreasing our coal intake in years yet to come. Blackout is going to the guts of the cruel strength questions that may dominate each sphere of public coverage in the course of the first half this century, and it's a must-read for planners, educators, and somebody keen on strength intake, top oil, and weather change.

Example text

You are not supposed to reject the object (phenomena — things that are happening — being known). You are to know (and thus note-observe) the defilements that arise because of the object and thus remove them. Only when there is Saddha, (faith) Viriya (effort) will arise. Only when there is Viriya, Sati will become continuous. Only when Sati is continuous, Samadhi will become continuous.  Only then Samadhi is established, then you will know things as they really are. When you start to know things as they really are, Saddha then increases further.

Don’t negotiate with hindrances and unprofitable things. Look at them straight in the eye, look straight into that mind.  Whatever it is it will disappear and won’t come back. Do not put it aside. Motivating Citta Motivating mind is that mind-idea that arises as you are practising and makes you feel that you must attend immediately to some kind of job, before it’s too late, or because this is the best time, or before you forget and so on. is is one of the most devastating weapons in the destructive mind’s arsenal.

Is it lobha? Is it dosa? If so, do you want to please or get rid of lobha and dosa? ’  You don’t do things because you like them but because you are interested. When you are experiencing something directly without thinking about it, that’s paramattha. Meditation is happening by itself. Nobody does meditation. Cittanupassana: awareness of mental impressions, thoughts, consciousness, mental states. While you are meditating don’t try to keep notes. If you think: Oh! is one is very good I better write it down before I forget — then the practice is gone.
