Importing fossil fuels should be limited as well. Our renewable energy sources must be fully exploited, and the RES industry must be state-supported and encouraged for further development. :wink:


The trouble is that RES are mostly unreliable....

I do not know of any island nation in the world who is self-sufficient, do you? Would be nice it that can be achieved but i think it is rather unrealistic.

I read that on Pitcairn island the locals just eat each other. Isn’t that self sufficiency? :?

We just lost 10000$ because of yours...
Euro lost all most 10 cents against USD with in last month. Peoples on Cyprus are angry for EU but in fact cypruses had cause so much trouble for all other European citizen with these bank conflict so all people in European area should be angry for Cyprus!
You don’t have any kind of reason burn European Union flags there we should burn yours flag here other countries. In fact we don’t be so ridiculous that we do so. Flags burns only in deepest jungle and by Beudins in the desserts.

Regards from Finland


Cypriots do not burn EU Flags but you are free to burn ours if you wish. Cypriots are just too sophisticated and have class and maturity unlike yourself it would seem.

If you lost money from your Cypriot Bank accounts, then we sympathise. Cypriots are not happy about the situation and now face great challenges with a marginalised Banking Sector. All this over 5 or 6 Billion Euros which I find quite pathetic. Such a real shame.

But it is hardly the people of Cyprus' fault. They did not cause the Greek Financial Collapse but had invested heavily in Greek Bonds and they agreed to a haircut to help Greece out thinking that the EU will come to the party when the time came, but alas....

Greece and Cyprus merely put a dent into the Eurozone. Neither are big enough to cause a major catastrophe. The catastrophe will occur if and when Italy, Spain, or France go down. If this occurs then that will be the knockout punch for the Eurozone. I hope for Europe's sake that Italy and Spain can hold firm but it does not look promising.

So tell me, what is 10 Billion compared to 5 Trillion?

Maybe, but it's free and Cypriot (i.e. not imported). Electricity generated from RES can be stored in batteries or converted to H2, or heat can be stored in thermal storage tanks for later use. :wink:

Obviously not. We can never become completely self-sufficient, but we should exploit our full potential towards that direction.

Currently Cyprus is producing less solar power than Germany! Why? Because of lack of planning. :roll:

We could have been self-sufficient if GR's ancestors hadn't eaten all of the pygmy-hippos!
