Now take a large city in the US and look at the estimated health care costs from pollution along with deaths. 

there was a comment on a discussion board somewhere about cost of health care for a country. Highlight the essence here...........

Imagine the prospects of health care service..... People who need it might usually be

a) infants and mothers/ pediatric < 3 years old,

b) aged generations/ geriatric > 60 yrs old,

c) some unusual cases of genetics, occasional cases etc.

Those ages in between might rarely need it because they are usually healthy and vibrant with activities, especially people from not so well off group. If, a + b + c comprise 10% of a population and out of this 10%, only 0.1 to 1% requires regular medical service, and if a population is 300 m, then it would be 300,000 people. Divide that into 50 states............ we get 6000 people per state? Divided that to 4 months to 6 months regular interval, one month would be 1500 people or 50 people per day? And divided that into how many districts equipped with clinics, yes?

Question:

1. after so much they have contributed to the economic growth of a country, is it really that hard to provide free care for them?

2. insurance started off as good intention and generosity of some well off pioneers to protect their workers who might be doing injury prone or high risk work.

Later, it grows to become making money on customers' expenses. All insurances purchased are like paying money for things you might or might not used once or twice for a life time, with no guaranteed return. Not even an investment linked saving insurance could guarantee your basic seed saving is protected............

Why insist to do it on high prices and why  impose?

Hence, we can probably deduce that high costs incurred might be due to mismanagement of fund or allocation e.g. wastage on purchases, excessive staff, overpriced purchases etc...........

If spending so much on hiring so many to treat so few, why can't we demand good quality of free service?

Wondering if there is a crash course teaching government officers the basic? 'n'

not too sure if dust particle theory is popular but generally.......... 

Early in the morning, if the day before was hot but morning after is humid and cooling in the tropics, the sun usually looks red. The theory is............ hot weather dries up dust particles hence, allows dust particles to fly higher up and fly everywhere. Condensation allows particles to settle on cloud or water vapour gathered. The combined density allows only radiation with the longest wavelength to penetrate i.e. infrared ray. And the sun and clouds across it appear reddish.

If weather was cooling the day before and cooling morning after, it might mean there would be less dust particles and vapour in the air. The sun appears yellow or orange due to less resistance on ray penetration. And so forth...

As water vapour or morning mist evaporated, the sun resumes whitish...... due to its hot burning center.

The deduction is hence, thickness of resistance layer in the air, formed by pollutants and water vapour would determine the colour we see........

thank you for the info.

pardon me...... but, generally.......... things that can not be explained in a mode that people with no prior knowledge can understand might mean it is not well understood. Hence, it is suspected that "radiation dispersal by particles smaller than wavelength' might be uuuhhhh..... forciful........ 'n'

Fortunately, coal is coming to the rescue of our energy shortages.

104 coal plants of a total of 102 gigawatts (GW) in 26 countries were planned, considered, or in construction under either Chinese financing or engineering, procurement and construction (EPCs) agreements, CREA and its partner in the report, People of Asia for Climate Solutions, said.

7.6 GW or 14 plants, have already entered into operation over the past year. Another 27 plants with 23 GW capacity are near completion, and they will likely enter into operation soon.

For a rescue energy source, coal seems to be on a multi year plateau to slight dip after decades of growth. With Covid still chugging along and a war on it might take a couple years for energy to shake out. Is the drop in Mongolian coal imports a reason China is adding coal?

U.S. judge agrees to appoint special master in Trump search case.

Three strikes and your out! Patience little one.

How is that Special Master working out for you......????

3 strikes and your out???

 

it is you're .......

Looks like Donald has  struck out 3 times in a row in front of his Special Master......

and now he is dragging down every one of the candidates he is backing....

Do you think he should be arrested ???? sure looks like he broke the law ....over and over again with the documents

Lock Her Up was his favorite chant......... Trumps crimes are 1000 times worse

Lock Him Up ....Please chant it as you know he deserves it

Patience little one...... he will face the long arm of the law soon........ and then you can visit him on visiting day.......

 

Enjoy ....

It already begin's..A  Armageddon with no retreat..no surrender.

Nadler feuded with Schiff, Pelosi over 'unconstitutional' impeachment of Donald Trump

Nadler's concern arose after he found out Judiciary Committee would not have ability to cross-examine impeachment witnesses

She didn’t want the Judiciary panel to interview witnesses at all," the book's authors wrote. "Pelosi simply didn’t trust the panel — which was stacked with liberal crusaders and hotheaded conservatives — to handle the rollout of the complex Ukraine narrative with the careful, compelling treatment it required. She couldn’t afford another Nadler screwup. The Judiciary chairman could focus on the legal business of crafting the articles of impeachment and have academics testify, she allowed. But that was it."

dude what are you now babbling about now......

You were babbling about the special master and 3 strikes and your out (you're for everyone else than the babbling  EWO) ...

and now you ignore your own babble.....

Same as Trump......

no surrender?????.....yep hope they drag him out by his ankles, its what they do to the real brain dead losers.....

Enjoy as the Special Master is not playing games...unlike Trumps lawyers.......

Justice department is not humored also with Trumps BS claims that he can declassify just by thinking.....

oh he is not playing with a full deck of cards.....

What do you think........... Trump is your man...ha ha ha ..Take some ownership and tells us all that he should not be locked up....

Ha ha ha

In the meantime price of crude keeps moving downward and Goldman Sachs laid a turd with their $130 Brent at the end of 2022

Looks like they are eating crow now.........

Enjoy

under this formula, lead is probably heavier than hydrogen. Hence, the smaller the mass, the smaller the energy?

2. not too sure if you have seen this.... it is a funnel wishing well. They way it functions is when one puts a coin onto it, the coin will roll, encircling the shape before dropping into the hole......

image.png.9176b2e6f3a9f6b12a341ca5d89f8e3f.png

This is when the center is fill with air only. If the speed of coin is fast enough, it will swirl at the same spot for a few round before dropping its speed and roll downward. Hence, I might be wrong that there might be no attraction at the center of the Sun but sere speed of rotation of planets that sustains them on their respective path....

3. If, when bond form, energy is released.

If fusion of hydrogen can be represented as H + H ------> He + energy

If fission of uranium can be represented by N + U --------> explosion -----> energy + smaller stable atoms

not too sure why am I sensing something is not quite match with fusion..... This is not my field. I barely passed physics. Just a feeling........ 🤗

image.png.10f8410b4b93c3706417af314aa608d5.png

In fusion reactions generally the hydrogen isotopes of Tritium and Deuterium are used and fused at extremely high temperatures to create a plasma contained in a magnetic field inside a Tokamak. The issues mainly are sustaining the reaction and waste heat. Quantum computing may be able to solve the problem of sustaining the fusion process but thats a few years away in my view.

When deuterium and tritium fuse, they create a helium nucleus, which has two protons and two neutrons. The reaction releases an energetic neutron. Fusion power plants would convert energy released from fusion reactions into electricity to power our homes, businesses, and other needs.

 

How do you fuse deuterium and tritium?
 
The most promising of the hydrogen fusion reactions which make up the deuterium cycle is the fusion of deuterium and tritium. The reaction yields 17.6 MeV of energy but to achieve fusion one must penetrate the coulomb barrier with the aid of tunneling, requiring very high temperatures .
 
Suggest you read up on fusion and current projects such as Iter

I replied below to this exact same post you posted in another topic!

Planned and considered does not mean going to happen!

China and India combined have in H1 of 2022 new capacity of 9.38GW

In the same peroid they had 11.167GW of retired capacity!

New build does NOT mean growth!!

Why is this so difficult to comprehend?

If you can post some numbers that refer to global current coal electricity production capacity thats growing then I will stand corrected.

Just wondering... Did you READ  your own links by any chance?????

China 2021 + 2022 retired: 1581 + 240 while installing 26,187 + 7540

Lets see... Retired 1821  Installed 33,727  an INCREASE of 31,906 GW

India 2021 + 2022 retired: 1480 + 480 while installing 6695 + 1840....

Do I REALLY have to do simple addition/subtraction for India as well?

How the $#!(T) can you live with yourself???  Do you ever look yourself in the mirror??

Dear Fool:
240 <<< 7540

480 <<< 1840

Please keep up!

Suggest taking 2nd grade again!
