just a note to point out a sophism in the title of this thread:
- "Belgian supplier" suggests that a Belgian merchant sells electricity to Belgian customers from his home. We rely on the fiber "made in our home". This is a sophism, of course. It has not escaped the technicians' point of view that the European electricity networks are interconnected on the one hand and on the other hand that the customers are what they are (they want their gadget to start when they press on ON and are impervious to the argument: "there is no wind and it is dark") electricity is Belgian or not ... The "made in home" is on the prospectus, in fact it's nuclear or coal or gas.
- "green electricity" ... let's read what Cretton de sebasol says:http://d718903.u126.swisscenter.com/rea ... id=1073&r=
well, we act as if we knew. We smile with an air of understanding to make stick the reality and the storytelling.
Yes, all this is obviously true, it is not at the level of a country that the stakes are located. Personally, having little patriotic fiber, it leaves me a little indifferent ...
On the other hand, I think it is essential that the production, regulation and programming of electricity, and energies in general, come under public power and not the sum of private initiatives regulated by the "invisible hand of the market". Without any illusions, I want to find what may be utopian: it is the community of men that decides the main lines of its future ... In Belgium as in France ... and in Switzerland
By cons, I do not believe in the beautiful stories of autarky or autonomy (in any field for that matter) as developed by Pascal Cretton: I can share what he says about stateless electrons and all marked of an original sin (though, sin, for an old atheist like me ...), but I do not succeed in understanding why he does not hold the same reasoning for his photovoltaic panels, which also have an origin, and contain a little gray energy not born of an immaculate conception.
To go a little further, these panels are likely to have been made in China, and therefore emit about 80g of CO2 per kWh produced; which in a country like Switzerland, where the production of electricity is essentially non-carbonized, seems to me a little absurd and shows the limits of a reasoning limited to a narrow border; even worse, objectively he is responsible, even more than his fellow citizens, for global warming and the misfortunes that overwhelm us ... Ah la la ... life, and dreams, are strewn with pitfalls ...
It must be remembered that man is a social animal, condemned to be dependent on others, and to influence others by all his acts; it is his misfortune and his greatness; today, both are global, and the concept of autarky is meaningless ...
Electrified from all countries, unite !!!
