Wind Powered Arguments.


Windmills... What windmills... That's the enemy, stupid!

Wind power seems a great way to produce clean energy.

Most people tend to agree until they start moaning that they are getting too close to their homes.

How can one convince people that sustainable sources of energy are the way to save the planet?




Can you please enumerate ways to disguise the windmills to make them blend with nature? We need a lot of hot air!

you cant disguise them... just can't -- plus how will we know where the 'enemy' if they blend in?

Ale, Caroline has come with a great idea! Windchimes! A different tune for each one...
Can you imagine standing on a beach on the North Sea, listening an offshore wind farm playing Beethoven's Fifth on a windy day?

Ohhh, I love that, windchimes.

How about coconut trees too?

Would Don Quixote attack those?

My mum said when she was a little girl, there was a family in a neighbouring village who used "wind chargers" to light up their home.

I agree, we need to start exploring other sources of energy.

What about the birds killed by those dreadful windmills?
Every case is different, sometimes it is worth building windmills for energy, sometimes they ruin nature.
There is also another solution that is already being used by some countries: build those windmills at sea.

GG, we had one of them wind charger when I lived on a farm as a kid. A blade on the roof using a dynamo charged batteries which we used to light up the rooms.
dcver, windmills at sea is something used up here. A great solution.

Cream, you lived on a farm? It sounds great, but I know farms are hhhhhaaard work.

Yes, that's how the wind charger worked, charged the batteries.

Windmills at sea? I like that.

Great life on a farm but I was too young to do any work apart from climbing the fig and almond trees...
