In Berlin's Mitte district, about 50m from the site of the former Wall, is this very nifty 'passive' block of apartments.

The mind gets focused on the consequences of war when you're in the repeatedly ravaged city of Berlin, a city that headquartered a former foe, now with a huge Turkish population, attending an Anzac service.
If ever there were pause to think about the deathly consequences of decisions made by politicians to send other people off to war, it's Gallipoli.
This polar bear is looking pretty satisfied with itself. It's probably heard what one of the country's biggest energy companies told us today about new laws here.

Looking at this graph, presented to us by the Economics Ministry, it's pretty clear that Germany plans a massive expansion of renewables by 2030. That dotted line - and the fossil fuel use represented under it - is only going in one direction.
In such a highly regulated country, I'm amazed that the thing shown in this photo exists. It surely breaks every OHS law ever created. It's a constantly moving doorless two person lift, that you jump into and out of as it arrives at each floor.
