This is not a chimney
These belching behemoths are cooling towers. In the UK's creaking, outdated power stations coal is burnt to heat water to steam. The steam is sent through turbines at high speed generating electricity. Once through the turbine a huge amount of energy remains in the hot water. For some reason the geniuses who designed these power plants decided that instead of using this heat for something useful like... er... heating they would call it 'waste heat' and fart it into the sky. Some power stations also fart the heat into rivers killing fish. Great move guys!

Climate sceptic!? You do the maths…
The atmosphere and oceans are so small in comparison to the overall earth it is comparable to a film of water on a billiard ball. Even all the mighty oceans only make up 1/4000 of the earth's total mass. The scale height of the atmosphere is about 8.5 km. Whereas the radius of the earth is 6,371.0km in other words the earth is more than 1000 times bigger than the atmosphere. The third rock from the sun contains around it a thin layer of water, gases and vapour at a temperature of between 89°C to 57.7 °C (mean = 14°C). Within this exists all of the known life in the universe and all that most of us holds dear.

Why bikes shouldn’t have to follow the rules of the road
Cyclists are safer to carefully go ahead of traffic and jump reds because this makes them more visible to cars.
Oil on the Brain - Review of There Will be Blood
Film review of There Will Be Blood: this visceral, poignant, haunting behemoth of a movie takes no prisoners. It is simultaneously an unrelenting portrait of an evil man and the documenting of a period of history in which the world changed forever.
