Stress with Christmas lights
The Christmas tree is lit by eletric candles connected to a bicycle and Hitzlifitzli is cycling to provide power at his utmost ability. The chicken are delighted and encourage him: „Faster, faster, the candles are almost about to flicker!“ Says the cock: „Really Girls? Aren’t you getting a bit carried away with all the climate change talk?“ Hydrochan smiles in a content way: „Oh, even a used FCEV could still do a better job.“
The media are currently discussing whether Christmas lighting and climate protection are compatible. Here’s a link to an article published by Merkur at December 8th 2019 (Sorry, not in English language).
The use of renewable energy may be a solution for green Christmas lighting. For example with wind and water power. The FCEV mentioned in the cartoon above is a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. It causes during operation no harmful exhaust gases. Hydrogen production can take place in summer, for example with surplus electricity from photovoltaic systems. The so-called season shift em> succeeds by storing the gas. And the reconversion is then done with fuel cells during the Christmas season.
