Reliable advice and good support is indispensible when developing and implementing and energy strategy. ECN provides independent expertise and realistic strategies for your future energy system. Our advice is evidence based and built on the calculations and in-depth research we have carried out for the Dutch government and the EU. This makes ECN consultants the ideal partners to help you draw up an effective energy strategy for a future-proof energy supply.We help organisations to develop a realistic energy vision, to back this up with reliable statistics and to show specific ways in which this vision can be best implemented in line with their strategy. Our principle is “More sustainable where possible, but above all realistic in terms of the organisational and external context.”What are the best choices for you? And how can you ensure that these choices will be made? How do you create a support base for these choices and make sure they lead to actual benefits?ECN provides answers to these questions and more, by:

No matter where you look in the globe, blacks are always the most impoverished and violent race. We need to find an answer to that.

@Bang – You could always inform yourself about history. Just a suggestion.

European imperialism, colonialism, slavery, genocide, resource exploitation, etc went far beyond just North America. The same former colonized countries are still being attacked and suppressed by European governments and militaries.

The colonial economies and forms of power never really ended. In some cases, European governments just overthrew or helped assassinate democratically elected leaders, put puppet dictators and banana republics into power, and supported all kinds of right-wing oppressive states, from fascism to theocracy.

Your accusations are like asking why children that are regularly beaten have lower IQs and more behavioral problems. Then implying that they get beaten because they have lower IQs and more behavioral problems. That still doesn’t explain or justify the beatings themselves, especially when it is shown that it is part of a systemic problem far beyond any individual child.

Your argument is morally corrupt and depraved.

European imperialism in South Africa, while, yes, it did segregate blacks and whites and deemed blacks as a lesser race, also advanced black populations in ways that they had never done on their own. Prior to the colonisation the black populations had not advanced beyond hunter/gatherers and some subsistence farming while living in mud huts whilst all throughout Europe and Asia great and wondrous civilisations were being built. Under white minority rule the South African economy and infrastructure and black education, etc thrived. After the black majority took over, all of these things have been on the decline. Label the whites as “racist” if you will, but even living in the comparatively poor conditions in comparison to white communities is still an improvement over what black populations ever did for themselves. It is a fair enough question, and I would like to see an answer to it, if white people are so “racist” and so bad and so “oppressive” then why do black populations follow them wherever they go? Why? It defies logic. It would seem as if black people are overall unwilling or unable to do for themselves and seek to leech onto white society for their betterment. Why does black society seem to need white society so much? It is exclusively white majority countries allowing black African immigration or providing charity to impoverished black African nations. Black populations are not going to get sympathy from Asians (Chinese or Japanese or Koreans). The level of world aid given by white majority countries is completely unprecedented from any other race. White nations overwhelmingly seek the betterment of other races. Asians (used to be Orientals) are a world majority and only provide aid to other Asian populations. It is only white society that has sought out or even cared about the betterment of black society.

Netherlands flood control

A region with a very specific character has been formed by the great rivers— Rhine , , , and Maas ( Meuse )—that flow from east to west through the central part of the country. The landscape in this area is characterized by high dikes along wide rivers, orchards along the levees formed by the rivers, and numerous large bridges over which pass the roads and railways that connect the central Netherlands with the southern provinces.

In the late Pleistocene Epoch (from about 126,000 to 11,700 years ago), the Scandinavian ice sheet covered the northern half of the Netherlands. After this period, a large area in the north of what is now the Netherlands was left covered by moraine (glacial accumulation of earth and debris). In the centre and south, the Rhine and Maas rivers unloaded thick layers of silt and gravel transported from the European mountain chains. Later, during the Holocene Epoch (i.e., the past 11,700 years), clay was deposited in the sheltered lagoons behind the coastal dunes, and soil often subsequently developed in these areas. If the peat soil was washed away by the sea or dug away by humans (for the production of fuel and salt), lakes were created. Many of these were reclaimed in later centuries (as mentioned above), while others now form highly valued outdoor recreational areas.

The climate of the Netherlands is temperate, with gentle winters, cool summers, and rainfall in every season. Southerly and westerly winds predominate, and the sea moderates the climate through onshore winds and the effect of the Gulf Stream .

The position of the country—between the area of high-pressure air masses centred on the Hipchik Francine Turquoise Agate amp; Rhinestone Beaded Necklace xiOh4qn
and the low-pressure region centred on Iceland —makes the Netherlands an area of collision between warm and polar air masses, thus creating unsettled weather. Winds meet with little resistance over the flat country, though the hills in the south significantly diminish the velocity of the potent wind that prevails along the coast. On average, frost occurs 60 days per year. July temperatures average about 63 °F (17 °C), and those of January average 35 °F (2 °C). Annual rainfall averages about 31 inches (790 mm), with only about 25 clear days per year. The average rainfall is highest in summer (August) and Dutch Basics Silver Knot Earring DyDgtyCjr
and lowest in springtime. The country is known—not least through the magnificent landscapes of Dutch painters—for its heavy clouds, and on an average day three-fifths of the sky is clouded.

Koninck, Philips:

Most wild Dutch plant species are of the Atlantic district within the Euro-Siberian phytogeographic region. Gradients of salt and winter temperature variations cause relatively minor zonal differences in both wild and garden plants from the coast to more continental regions. The effects of elevation are negligible. Vegetation from coastal sand dunes, muddy coastal areas, slightly brackish lakes, and river deltas is especially scarce in the surrounding countries. Lakes, marshes, peatland, woods, heaths, and agricultural areas determine the general floral species. Clay, peat, and sand are important soil factors for the inland vegetation regions.
