Argentina's inflation edges up in June, breaking a months-long streak in a blow to President Milei
  • If a country is running a deficit and everyone agree that needs to be fixed. Saying you don't agree that your taxes have gone up and benefits have gone down without providing any alternative is meaningless. It's just whinging.

  • Argentina's inflation edges up in June, breaking a months-long streak in a blow to President Milei
  • I'm not really inclined to listen to someone that has no idea what they are on about verse a literal ex professor. If someone who has any idea what they are on about starts making logical arguments rather than "I don't like him" then I might listen. But you, do you. Have fun.

  • Argentina's inflation edges up in June, breaking a months-long streak in a blow to President Milei
  • The fact is the countries budget, economy, the investment, it's view from the rest of the world is in a complete and utter shambles. It's in a state that most countries won't see ever. That requires drastic action.

    This is not the option between doing nothing and doing something.

    Something has to be done and something has been done. You're being critical of change that was required.

    Personally I hope the lives of Argentina's improve. I wouldn't want to wish that misery just so I could say an expert on the matter is wrong.

    It's not a fallacy at all. It just shows you know nothing about the subject. You come across as man screaming at the scientist because there is no way they could have gone to the moon because you don't understand it. You don't know how to go to the moon but you "know" it's wrong. You got the feelings and that's all that matters.

    I'm sorry you dislike a guy so much. But I bet you got a million and one reasons why communism is great and all its failings can be explained with endless excuses.

  • Argentina's inflation edges up in June, breaking a months-long streak in a blow to President Milei
  • I don't see wishing suffering on Argentinians as anything but repugnant.

    So let me hear it. What would you do to so wonderfully fix the economy that an expert is getting all wrong?

    Or is this just typical Lemmy choosing your side and ignoring anything that is contradictory to it? Why wouldn't you want an expect to run the economy is such trying times?

  • Government removes ban on onshore wind development in England
  • The market is really hamstrung at the moment for building in the UK. Also the government is really hamstrung by itself.

    Freeing up the ability to build generation, transmission, housing and transport is going to be great for the UK.

    Tesla loses EV market dominance, falls below 50% in US [unit sales in 2024Q2]
  • This website fucking insane in all honesty.

    Like I'm not going to say Elon is perfect. But on here they live in fantasy land. He seems to be living rent free in their head.

    Space X is the biggest one where it becomes obvious how biased it is. Space X will public announced that they are testing something and expect it to fail. Then it does better than expected but doesn't complete everything perfectly. Then everyone on here acts like the greatest space company in the world is failing singlehandedly because Elon is stupid and also an evil genius. Also that he has too much control and that is had too little.

    Facts don't matter here. Everyone is too fragile so free speech is scary to them.

    How Quantum Dots Could Change the Future of Solar

    "Quantum dot technology has been in TVs for years, so why isn’t it already in solar panels? Well, there are a few challenges. If we can engineer around these challenges, then these little devices could have a BIG impact - breaking the limits of our current solar panels, and ushering in a new and radically more efficient age of solar energy."

    How do I get spell correction for Android? [Solved]

    I suck at spelling and would like to know a word I have typed is wrong or not. Ideally with a red underline.

    I really struggle looking at text I have written and seeing the mistakes. I have tried Samsung, openboard, gboard. None seem to fix the issue.

    I'm willing to download anything as long as it's not a privacy concern. Is there any way to get what I want.

    I have a Samsung 22+ if that makes a difference

Today’s playbook on wind turbines is indeed “all too familiar” to European policymakers, said one EU diplomat, who was granted anonymity to discuss the imminent policy announcement.

    www.bbc.com Boom times for US green energy as federal cash flows in

    The US government has directed unprecedented sums of money at green energy projects.

    Boom times for US green energy as federal cash flows in

    "Signed into law by President Biden in August 2022, the IRA, along with the so-called Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) enacted in November 2021, are intended, amongst other things, to funnel billions of federal dollars into developing clean energy.

    The aim is to lower greenhouse gas emissions, and incentivise private investment, to encourage the growth of green industries and jobs: a new foundation for the US economy.

    With a 10-year lifespan, and a cost originally estimated at $391bn (£310bn) but now predicted to reach over $1tn - the final figure is unknown - the IRA offers new and juicer tax credits, as well as loans and loan guarantees for the deployment of emissions reducing technology."
