News from Germany

Germany gets too much solar power
Actually, solar power makes up only a small fraction of energy produced/comsumed in Germany. The problem is that you get a lot of it when the sun shines, and none when it doesn’t, and the current power grid won’t be able to deal with that if solar energy keeps growing this quickly.

Cannabis on police badges
Looking at more current German sources, it seems like someone decided to give special badges to experts for recognising drug influence in traffic. Their colleagues that handled dogs or explosives had own badges already. Seems like no-one has taken credit for starting the whole thing yet. The ministry of the interior of Lower Saxony, which has authority over the police organisation in question, was surprised and not amused.
