Moving to this thread to avoid the Brexit stuff, @ann post any thoughts on what Ireland can do as a country to be either financially independent or at least not be completely fucked over the moment a global recession hits? Obviously we could be in a better position if we had looked at what happened in 2008 and spent the past decade making plans but I'm looking for ideas here, not just blaming Fine Gael.

1) Something, something 100% Green or Green & Nuclear Power (prolly too expensive I suppose)
2) TOURISM, rebrand every fucking street to appeal to the Americans
3) ????
4) Socialist Utopia not pegged to Silicon Valley
I'd have notions about things - Like a bit form 1, a bit from 4 - any kind of oil recession is going to wipe out tourism in nanoseconds. This probably outdated or problematic but essentially if we could just be less dependent in the bottom two tiers here rather than snorting coke off the top one while selling the all the lower ones we'd be a bit more robust.

3,2,1, and the Ian O'Doherty and Brendan O'Connor's of this world will be declaring climate change to be a good thing and i'll have to deal with my parents telling me about it,

My understanding is that even at very conservative estimations coal kills more people per year than Chernobyl ever managed in the fallout from the disaster. I too wish to know why we should not use nuclear power.


My current city in Cities: Skylines is 100% green powered thanks to some early investment by me so I have proven that that is possible as well.
This game has been my lockdown really

I felt sad yesterday evening when I realised the number of cars on the road seems to be returning to Covid-19 levels. I noticed an uptick in recent weeks but by yesterday evening, except for the queue outside the local wee Tesco, you'd be hard pressed to notice anything were awry. I had got used to the quietness and the ability to walk safely on a road. Apparently cycling everywhere has seen a massive increase in recent months but it is sad to witness a palpable return to car domination of our environment.
