The militants have in the past claimed that the polio vaccination is a cover for espionage or a Western conspiracy to sterilise Muslims.

I wonder if they do it intentionally? Putting something that indisputably happened right next to pants-on-head retarded conspiracy babble without any indication which is which.

The speech is a collection of unassailable platitudes. I think he's punking us.

I thought "Scheck" was European usage (or would be, if Europeans still used things like that). You probably meant British usage, but a country that now celebrates Thanksgiving shouldn't have the right to complain.

Not sure of your numbers, especially as modern windmills have a bit greater footprint (including wake effects), but the theory holds. Perhaps industrial jobs are gone, but the wind industry certainly needs a fleet of top mechanics and rope access technicians.

And there's already lots of turbines in those great plains.

Pedantic nitpick

The FT corrected the spelling of "cheques" (European usage) from "checks" (American usage) in the official EU transcript of the speech. (See This, my friends, is why we can't have nice things.)
