HR has been accused in Koebenhavn as one of the largest antiecological countries but this year it seems that we finally have normal winter after few years of spring in December and January. we probably destroy climate in other countries

Is it true that most of Denmark's Rail network except a few lines is Diesel?

This sub forum is about highways, but:

That's true. So little of Denmarks railways are electrified. North of Fredericia, no railways are electrified at all. DSB call trains "good for the environment". They also say that you use 7 times more CO2 per person travelling by car than by train. In Denmark, nobody are guranteed a seat. To make sure you get a seat, you must pay 25DKK in advance.
When DSB says that with less CO2, they just could compare 1 guy sitting in 1 car with 700 people sitting in a train with a 100 seats.

Actually trains are not more efficient than cars. Yes, they could be if all seats were occupied during the operational day. However, even in the Netherlands, the average occupancy is only 29%. This is equal to the average of 1.2 persons per car (1.2/4*100 = 30%).
That is why the railroad network requires twice as much space as the motorways on a per traveled km basis.

In Denmark, the government says that we should stop using cars. To make us stop using cars, they put 100% tax on cars and. 80% tax on gas (more than 90% on LPG).
Meanwhile, the cost on public transportation is getting a million times higher for evey 2 freaking seconds. What kind of government is that, when it thinks that both cars and train should be expensive??

electrified are main route from D to S (Padborg - Koebenhavn) with branches Tinglev - Soenderborg and Koebenhavn - Helsingoer (and some railroads in Koebenhavn area are electrified but on 1,5kV - those lead to Koege, Fredriksund, Farum and Hilleroed)

1.5 kV. I didn't know it could get so low. The rest of the electrified railways are 25kV 50Hz AC

oh yes, it can! you have lots of 1,5kV railroads in France, even on TGV lines. however, new TGV lines are 25kV. for instance Toulouse or Bordeaux have only 1,5kV net.
the Netherlands use also 1,5kV network.

that game has great future, but they are not developing it as they should. first of all, they should do surrounding teraffic much "wiser" and natural. roads themselves also have plenty of space for improvments. and they should buy rights from manufacturers for lorries' names for god's sake! that game is not freeware!!

In the US , you can buy it Best Buy , thats where the company allows it to be sold, idk about Europe , yes there is a 60min Full game demo that comes out before the Game. Its best you have alot of space on your PC , becuz u can get Lag ,also its easier playing with a Steering Wheel and Pedals vs. Keyboard or Mouse.

Public transport needs more government funding than roads. In the Netherlands, the ratio is about 20 to 1, when calculated to a per km basis. For every km traveled, the investment in roads is 1, while it is 20 for public transport. PT gets about double the funding of roads, yet manage to get only 10% of the modal share.

The more people use PT, the more government money (or fare raises) are needed. More users doesn't mean PT is more cost-efficient, more like the contrary. Frequent users usually travel with significant discounts, meaning the budgetary gap between income and spending gets bigger with every added traveler because the costs rise faster than farebox income. Don't get yourself blinded by optimistic operating income statistics. They are only a part of the total spending/income.

In Denmark, the government can throw millions after public transportation. The only thing that happens, is that the transportation companies get more money. Public transport in NL, is that public or private??
