Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

To be honest, during my Googling, I found one source stating a high ratio (I don't remember anymore, maybe just 1:2), but I discounted it. It was a rough indirect estimate of the total energy input, calculating backwards from GDP numbers and various energy sector statistics.

At any rate, I'm glad you saw that about wind turbines, for I am a big wind power advocate.

(A fond memory of mine is when an American wrote me that there is a wind farm near him that kills many birds, I could impress him by telling him where he lives: near the infamous Altamont Pass.)
