Seriously tho: I don't get why people hate on this so much. In your pic I personally love how the blocks blend into the scenery. I also often like the view of big industry buildings or fields of wind turbines. Or back in the 90s my grandparents village still had wooden electricity poles and I thought they looked super cool. Those things have their own aesthetic and I don't see why they shouldn't mix, except for national parks and such.

What looks alien and what does not look alien depends entirely on your expectations shaped by experience.

Here's some ideas how to do it better:
We could just build OSB-home next to OSB-home for miles and miles. Or we could live more compactly, kowloon-style, three or four people in 8m² room. Not if they are rich, of course. Only the commoners. Or we could send a few million undesirables where they belong and gas a few million more.

How many square meters per Capita does your place if dwelling have? If it's more than ten, then you are part of the problem. Same as all the assholes who complain about nuclear power/wind turbines/lignite mining, but still use electricity. They make demands, but then demand that those demands are meet magically. Or especially for them, but not for anyone else, because they are so ducking special and should get special treatment. Like
"I should live in a home that gives me able of space, but no one else should, because that would look ugly. Of course, I am very different from other people I am special, because I am so much better." That is the arrogance that goes into your mouth. Put your feet where your mouth is and move into the tiniest slum-hole you can find, if everyone does it, the tower blocks can all be demolished. You don't want to live in the tiniest slum-hole you can find? Then don't complain.

Fair enough. I've been born and raised in a relatively decent "sleeping district" of Moscow, with apartment buildings and institutes sinking in greenery, where the uniformity of the landscape is occasionally broken by natural parks. (Makes me feel nostalgic about the late USSR sometimes, so I need to remind myself about the shortages of pretty basic things and the endless lines.)

This is how Earth (probably) looked like in the Paleozoic. Imagine forests made of giant equisetum (horsetails) and ferns. BTW Koreans eat pickled ferns.
In Mesozoic it were all sorts of conifer plants, and in Cenozoic (current era) flowering plants became dominant. What will plants of future be like?

Keked. In general, the overpopulation problem is sucked out of ass. In all the world birth rates are declining and soon population in all countries except Africa and India will be shrinking. All it takes is to teach Africans feminism and send them contraception and Nintendos, because for many people playing Nintendo is more interesting than wiping baby's feces. And then 500 million humans will live in harmony with nature.

No forrests at all, just desert. Some machiose bushland might survive in Alaska.

People have known about climate change for 50 years, they did not stop burning fossil fuels, instead, they burned increasing amounts. They will not stop in 20 years, either. Hothouse earth, the collapse of civilization and mass extinctions on an unknown scale are the guaranteed results.

>No forrests at all, just desert.
How come? With temperatures rising, evaporation from the oceans also increases (even more so considering the raising sea level). For one, you cannot have deserts in places where warm oceanic streams hit continental shelfs.

>This is how Earth (probably) looked like in the Paleozoic. Imagine forests made of giant equisetum (horsetails) and ferns.
Well, you definitely cannot extrapolate markedly different planetological conditions on the current climate. A lot has changed about our planet since then, from things as obvious as the position of the continents to the average chemical composition of Earth's crust, the physical amount of water in the oceans and the general planetary circulation of air and water (hence also the mechanisms of heat distribution). And the Paleozoic wasn't some uniform era either: the Permian age, for example, was markedly colder and more arid than the Carboniferous.
No. 83071
Also more CO2 = more plants. Unlike animals, they consume it for photosynthesis.

>Also more CO2 = more plants.
It may lead to a slight increase in the global mass of plants (though that increase is unlikely to surpass the rapid decrease because of artificial deforestation - forests accumulate a much larger organic mass than agricultural landscapes), but one must bear in mind that in highly arid areas the main limiting factor is still water.

It depends a lot on the person how many Germanisms they use. It used to be a lot more common because of Austria.
People who are older or come from German minority backgrounds use more.
Sometimes Germanisms just refer to Germnan history, like when someone is embarassed you could say he’s “Burning like the Reichstag”.

>is this also a German word you build in your language?
If by "also" you're implying that describing "hoax" news as ducks is of German origin, do you have some info on it? Perhaps I misunderstood. Anyways, I think it comes from French originally. Also Finnish also has this in the form of uutisankka "news duck".

>'Canard' is the French word for duck, but in both French and English it can also mean a false or absurd story, particularly one printed in a newspaper. According to a widely circulated theory, the word acquired this meaning on account of a 19th Century experiment involving cannibalistic ducks.

Folk wisdom about birds:
Yellow birds (great tits lol) = soon it will be cold.
Red birds (bullfinch, or "snowbird" in Russian) = already cold.
Also you can ask cuckoo "How long do I have to live?" and how many times it will say "cuckoo", this number of years you have.

What kind of half-witted opinion is this? Birds do not fly from some hard-earned courage or gumption or talent. They fly because it is the singular purpose for which they evolved, they fly because it is their function, their nature, volo ergo sum.
