And that's great. I hope it may be useful to prevent future chip shortages such as the one which had recently caused so much disturbance to the industry.

Seen the news about the gas situation in the UK?
It went from bad to worse, about to be a disaster and will probably go full catastrophic.
Whomever thought a fracking ban was a good idea needs to be fired, out of a cannon in to the sun.
Figured I would come back to point and laugh harder.
Hahahahahhaha

Both the fracking ban and some fierce opposition to the usage of leftovers from food industries as a feedstock for biofuels, which can be traced back to the pipe-dreams of an EV-centered future relying on solar and wind power, are all part of the same problem.

I think the fracking ban is generally more tied into the stuff that wound up contaminating the water table, rather than utopian EV dreams.

That's only been confirmed to happen in 1 gas formation in 1 area. And that's why the oil and gas industry does not frack shallow gas beds any more. I don't think they fracking anything less than a mile down now. I haven't heard of anything less than 7,000 feet being fracked.
There have been between 1 million and 2 million fracking jobs preformed in the US, only the shallow gas bed in montana contaminated wells.
Because you know if a fracking job contaminated a well anywhere the news would run the story 24/7 until something else grabbed their attention.
And that's why they have to pretend like what happened in montana is what always happens everywhere. When the reality is at the height of the fracking boom over 100 wells a day were being fracked and you never heard a peep about anything bad happening.

We know about 3 nuclear plants out of 667, and only 1 of those killed people, and not to diminish the tragedy, but it was Communism that killed 'em. In the pursuit equity by ensuring equally incompetent yes-men, the outcome was achieved.

1 hydroelectric dam burst killed up to 380,000 people in china.
If a nuclear plant kills you then you statically won the lottery while being struck by lightning.

I'm aware of some dam bursts in Brazil, yet they had been more frequent on mining sites than on hydroelectric powerplants.
