Asked in Europe, Global Warming, Carbon Footprints

What country has the smallest carbon footprint?

User Avatar
Kiribati, a small island nation in the Pacific Ocean, has the smallest carbon footprint. It is particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise from global warming, and its President signed the Bandos Island declaration on 10 November 2009. This was a promise by Kiribati and nine other countries to show moral leadership and start greening their economies by voluntarily committing to carbon neutrality.
Asked in The Bible, Europe

Which Europeans descended from peoples in the Bible?

Jesus commissioned His disciples to go and preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the "lost tribes of the House of Israel." Not to the Jews or Gentiles. "...Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." (Matt.10:5-7) The House of Israel were the vast majority of the Hebrew tribes who were scattered into Asia originally by Assyria [ancient Germans], approximately 130 years before the Jews went into Babylonian captivity [II Kings 17]. The House of Israel became known to history and the world as the "lost ten tribes of the House of Israel." The Jews returned from Babylon after 70 years -- the House of Israel never did. With the defeat and dispersal of the Assyrian empire... so were the "lost sheep" further scattered and they migrated into the European continent and the British Isles. These tribes eventually emerged as European nations. Many of them, however, were still in and around the Asian arena at the time of the disciples. It was to these whom Jesus sent His disciples, who also disappeared from the Bible record and world history following Jesus' ascension into heaven. After that, we read a few token names of disciples like Peter, James, John and some of their works. But, mostly we read of Paul and his commission to the Gentiles. The "lost sheep of the House of Israel" still don't know who they are to this day -- but it was they to whom Jesus commissioned His disciples to plant the seeds of His Word, and it was they who eventually emerged in Europe as "Christ-professing nations" in what was to be called by some as the "free world." Although this list is disputed by some... and denied by others... here is where the "lost sheep" ended up: Reuben: France Asher: Belgium & Luxembourg Simeon & Levi: Scattered Gad: Switzerland Judah [the Jews]: Scattered & in Israel [Palestine, today] Naphtali: Sweden Zebulun: Holland Ephraim: Britain Issachar: Finland Manasseh: the United States of America Dan: Denmark & Ireland Benjamin: Norway

Asked in Europe

When is fall in Europe?

User Avatar
A season ends and starts on either an equinox or a solstice (whichever it starts with it will end with the opposite). Fall starts on the Autumn Equinox and ends on the Winter Solstice. However, Equinoxes and Solstices do not stay on the same day every year. The Autumn Equinox starts on either September 22 or September 23 and the Winter Solstice starts on either December 21 or December 22. So Fall starts in Europe on September 22/23 and ends on December 21/22.

Asked in Technology, Europe

Can I use a US shaver in Europe?

User Avatar
Yes, but you need to check the input voltage on the label of the shaver. Most are 100-240v so it will accept the input ok. The other issue is the type of plug it has on it. Depending whether it is a rechargeable or just plain mains-only shaver it will probably have a two pin plug. If the pins are round, they will fit into any bathroom shaver socket. If they are flat, they are designed to go into a regular wall socket, so you will need a travel plug for the country you are travelling to. <<>> Most shavers are able to use 100-240 v but they have an adjustment which must be set to the new voltage when you change country. My shaver can be switched to 110 v, 120 v , 220 v and 240 v and if it is connected to the wrong voltage it might not work and/or it might be damaged.
