Visit Florian & Sabrina

Visit of Florian & Sabrina

Before all the travellers were blacklisted, we had the joy of welcoming Florian and Sabrina for the weekend at home.  The word "home" seems strange to us who change it every 3 years ...
3 years is also the length of time it takes Florian, who left Brittany first on his round-the-world trip. His project: to raise awareness of the problem of waste.  He gets informed, he meets people, he collects.  His symbolic goal is to collect a ton of waste but after a year and a half, he has already collected 836kg, he explains. In short, he goes too fast! Like many other things, but here we'll salute the feat instead.
Florian arrived with Sabrina, his girlfriend (and his nurse) who joined him for a long drive.
They arrived home on a rainy day.  At home, it's a day of celebration (considering the amount of water we receive per year) but that was not very important for us...
We went for a walk in Muir Woods in the cathedrals of sequoia gigantea.


After 2 nights and 2 days together, they pack up their stuff and I drive them to Belmont (CA). They stack their saddlebags on their bikes which instantly goes from 15kg to 51kg.  They will stay a few days in Silicon Valley where unfortunately COVID19 will want all the planned activities to be cancelled.  The trip promises to be a little more complex, next week is the takeoff, in principle, to Japan. Good luck, have a good trip.

Plasticity – Flexibility – Resiliency

Well, this all started well. 
(french version below)
Géry and I had to leave in 20 days to cross the USA with our bike, to meet those who are working to find solutions, alternatives, new ways to live in harmony on this planet.
COVID 19 has caused us to revise our plans.  No possible plane for Géry, no solar-bike for me, no hotels or campground available, and no possibility for meeting with all those problem solvers.  So, it was a bit "should I stay, or should I go now"?
We both decided to go together but separately.  We are going to travel two continents at the same time: America and Europe.  Some would see it as greed, we see resiliency.
Having lost my co-driver and the "superbike", I turned to what was "close to me" (short circuit ;-): my son Léopold (21 years old) and my everyday bike.

We will be leaving next week, with a sum of compromises that gives, in the end, a rather cheerful cocktail.  My wife Corine will accompany us to provide us with the lodgi…
A solution Now.
I would like to share what really "made my weekend" last week.  The confinement in which we live has led me to Netflix😔.   I was a little bit less reluctant to go since it complied with the European Commission's injunctions by reducing its bandwidth by 25%!  It’s insane to imagine that Netflix accounts for 15% of the global downlink traffic according to the data of the American network specialist, Sandvine…  
But on Netflix, I discovered a magnificent triptych: Inside Bill's Brain 🙌.  The third part is more specifically about the search for climate change solutions.  

I discover something really exciting: a solution design exists today and is ready for prototype construction program.  It's nuclear, and it's called "Travelling Wave Reactor®" , engineered by TerraPower.

For decades, there hasn't been any innovation in this field, and in 2006, Bill Gates got the guts to disrupt that field. Nuclear power is a kind of monster tha…
