Cuanto menos luz gasta más paga usted en el recibo

Las eléctricas recuperan a través del término de potencia los costes de inversión en generación que no pueden recuperar por el precio de mercado de la electricidad.

 

Cualquiera puede observar que en los últimos dos años el precio de la energía utilizada para producir electricidad ha bajado, pero el recibo de la luz ha subido. Un elixir mágico, llamado regulación a la carta (de las compañías eléctricas, por supuesto), ha conseguido que el consumidor que menos energía eléctrica gasta sea el que pague más en términos relativos; y viceversa. Una política racional de precios procuraría que pagasen más (en términos relativos) los que más gastan, porque eso es lo que dicen los manuales de economía y porque de esa manera podría buscarse una disuasión del consumo. Pero en España sucede al revés. ¿Por qué?

Pues porque el regulador —el Gobierno— decidió en 2013 que era necesario, mejor dicho, imperativo, aumentar lo que paga el cliente en concepto de potencia contratada, que es la parte fija del recibo, para garantizar (parece la única explicación económica) los ingresos de las eléctricas. El balance desde agosto de 2013 es arrasador: para el consumidor doméstico ha supuesto una subida del 92% de la parte fija del recibo (término de potencia contratada) y del 145% para el consumidor industrial. La decisión ataca directamente los bolsillos de los clientes con menos capacidad económica y liquida cualquier política de ahorro; se haga lo que se haga con el consumo en los hogares, el peso principal del recibo sigue siendo inmune a la austeridad.

Zimbabwe ‘seeks lion Cecil’s killer’ Walter Palmer from US

The US dentist who killed a lion in Zimbabwe should be extradited to face charges, Zimbabwe’s Environment Minister Oppah Muchinguri has said.

There has been a huge online backlash against Mr Palmer. The dental practice he runs in Minneapolis has been closed since he was named as the hunter who shot Cecil.
On Thursday, the White House said it would review a public petition to extradite the American dentist after more than 100,000 signed it.
But spokesman Josh Earnest said it was up to the US justice department to respond to any extradition order.

United States

 

SS United States is a luxury passenger liner built in 1952 for United States Lines designed to capture the trans-Atlantic speed record.

Built at a cost of $78 million, the ship is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the US, the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction, and even in her retirement retains the Blue Riband given to the passenger liner crossing the Atlantic Ocean in regular service with the record highest speed.

Her construction was subsidized by the US government, since she was designed to allow conversion to a troop carrier should the need arise. United States operated uninterrupted in transatlantic passenger service until 1969. Since 1996 she has been docked at Pier 82 on the Delaware River in Philadelphia.

Boeing 777

The Boeing 777 is a family of long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliners developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world’s largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity for 314 to 451 passengers, with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km). Commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven”, its distinguishing features include the largest-diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, fully circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between Boeing’s 767 and 747. As Boeing’s first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls. It is also the first entirely computer-aided designed commercial aircraft.

The 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths as of 2014. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997. The stretched 777-300, which is 33.25 ft (10.1 m) longer, followed in 1998. The longer-range 777-300ER and 777-200LR variants entered service in 2004 and 2006 respectively, while the 777F, a freighter version, debuted in February 2009; these variants all feature General Electric GE90 engines and extended raked wingtips. The earlier 777-200, -200ER and -300 versions are equipped with GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. The 777-200LR is the world’s longest-range airliner, able to fly over halfway around the globe, and holds the record for the longest distance flown non-stop by a commercial aircraft.

REX

“Here she is… Here she is! Papà, Papà! The Rex, the Rex!” The central scene of Amarcord, Fellini’s Oscar-winning film, opens with this phrase. The characters have embarked on several small boats to spend the night at sea off the coast of Rimini, awaiting the passage of the almost mythical liner: through the dark night, the Rex appears, glittering with lights, and then, like some constellation or like a dream, she is gone. This celebrated Italian vessel had entered the collective imagination as a symbol of the glamorous liners of the ‘Thirties; her fame had already begun in 1929 when the announcement was made of her building. The financial crisis had brought to a standstill the construction of several liners and the news that Italy intended to build one of the largest, most modern, speediest and most luxurious ships ever planned seized the headlines across the World.
