Auf jeden Fall. Vor allem war der erzieherische Effekt eher vorübergehender Natur...man hat sich einfach zu sehr daran gewöhnt, dass Elektrizität immer und überall (und scheinbar unbegrenzt) verfügbar ist. Was wir für diesen Luxus der Erde antun, verdrängt man bisweilen allzu leicht.

Es ist gar kein einfaches Thema...Leider, wird es oft übertrieben...und zu viel Energie sinnlos verbraucht...Es muss sich langsam ändern...aber die meistens sind dafür noch nicht bereit...

Wer hätte gedacht, dass ein Kraftwerk und ein Tagebau so ein wunderbar ästhetisches Bild abgeben

Ich muss zugeben, dass es mich bisweilen auch erstaunt, wieviel "Schönheit" in alltäglichen oder sogar in eher unschönen Motiven stecken kann. Freut mich, dass es Dir gefällt. Vielen Dank! ^^

True that, Hanan. This power station is the seventh largest emitter of CO2 in the world...the use up about 80,000 tons of brown coal each day! :/

Glad that you like the image, thank you very much! :blackrose:

It seems whenever I see a big burst of smoke go up from a factory a little piece of me dies. I remember when I was young smelling the rain coming to my grandmothers farm, she has a 30 acre piece of property right in the middle of Kentucky Thoroughbred country. I was very blessed growing up. Here is a beautiful picture of Rose Hill Farm, taken after a small ice storm.. [link] And then a few weeks later spring...[link] That is my older sister Angelles. We fooled quite a few with that one. Much Love Lourdes :heart:

I'm glad to hear that you grew up in such a pleasant surrounding. Actually, such places became rare since we humans seem to do our best to destroy our base of life more and more each day. This particular place, where I took the photo, already looks like the surface of the moon or something. It's unbelievable...

The state I am from is Kentucky aka "The Bluegrass State" in spring the new grasses as in Central Kentucky are extremely rare. When the sun comes up burning off the dew the grass literally takes on a blue hue.(you really have to see it with your own eyes) LOL Lexington, the city I was born in is the thoroughbred capital of the world. I was very very blessed to have such a beautiful place to grow up. I wish someday you could see it, my husband and I would love to take you on tour of our lovely city, and talk with you.

Much Love and Light

Yeah, but those clouds would be very dirty. This power station is one of the biggest air polluters in Germany. :/

Those are cooling towers. Nothing more. I live near a coal and nuclear power plant. The large stacks producing white clouds are nothing more than cooling towers venting the steam that turns the turbines to produce electricity. The actual pollution comes out of, generally, much taller and much, much more slender stacks. While judging by the number of cooling towers needed, it does stand to reason that the size of this plant is rather large and therefore would produce a considerable amount of pollution. But contrary to popular misconception, that plant, nor any other plant, puts out nearly as much as what people can physically see with the naked eye.

DpressedSoul Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm sorry, but you're wrong. Those are combined cooling and flue gas emitting towers, they demolished the tall stacks a couple of years ago. Considering the fact that they use up about 80,000 tons of brown coal each day and emit about 23,7 million tons of CO2 per year I don't care much if I can "see" the pollution. ;)
