Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Playing out all potential scenarios it comes down to Chile becoming like Switzerland or like Venezuela. Make your bets. Bringing in a new Pinochet only repeats history.

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

Actually you don't need the original but you do need a duplicate if you don't have it. It took 8 months but I finally received an email from Extranjeria which contained a link to this website: https://tramites.extranjeria.gob.cl To enter the website you need a ClaveÚnica which can get at the Registr...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Regardless of the source, being left or right biased, the content of that VC article regarding the PR machine behind Greta, at least portions of it, do stand on their own.

Re: Wood burning for heat - what is needed to make it unnecessary?

Well any kind of free money, subsidy, incentive will certainly appeal to the psyche To clarify it's not that I'm advocating for some kind of socialist free money intervention, but if it comes down to spending x amount of dollars on some token electric buses from China I'd rather see that money goin...

Re: Wood burning for heat - what is needed to make it unnecessary?

Agreed on the paraffin/kerosene...its terrible awful and very bad for all the reasons you mention. I've had people tell me how they got free from wood heating and started using kerosene toyotomis in their house.
