Went over like a lead balloon here. New pie in the sky is either government bailout or price caps. Good luck with those. New PM reminds me so much of Sarah Palin.

Much renewables in place already, hinting at restarting their nukes.

Odd enough, biomethane from biodigesters can address both the fuel and Nitrogen-based fertilizer shortages, yet it's also under scrutiny from the enviroterrorists. IIRC in the Netherlands there were attempts to ban the usage of cattle manure as a natural fertilizer, which would increase the detrimental effects of the synthetic fertilizer shortage created within the same context of the natural gas shortage...

I'm just waiting for the "pristine earth" religious types to proclaim that diverting an asteroid headed our way is an artificial act of humanity that undermines nature's perfect plan. We should embrace every "natural" state of being.

The alternative interpretation is that redneck thought a UL-approved hot plate tucked between the box spring and matress will ignite polyurethane foam.

I'm more interested in dipped in liquid Nitrogen and vibrated into dust. It's less energy intensive and would yeild some gold and mercury amalgam.

But unless you add a binder to entrain the air pockets, it isn't very structural in a non horizontal plane.
