      How interesting, that people which made a lot of money in other business like musk and dyson try to break through the lobby of classic car producers. Despite if they are successfull or not: They give a huge impact in development of this technology. They have a vision, and the conventionals do - in my opinion - more or less an alibi project.

                    I have shown pictures from Marina Barrage before and probably posted about this project ad nauseam, but here is another article about it from CNA:

                      Interesting article about sustainability and environmental problem solving.

                      I have a distinct impression that Singapore is heading in a very different way than for example Norway. Both countries likes to take some serious environmental steps, but at Singapore, they seem to think bigger, a different way and they also seem to think faster. Here in Norway, the government (central and local) is thinking more about adding tolls and fees to everything we like to do, in the name of environment, but in the end, we seem to achieve nothing.

                      I would be extremely curious to hear what you think, ombugge, as you have been so fortunate to cal Singapore your home. Am I completely off, or are there others thinking (more or less) the same way.
