Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
70% of the planet is water.  Windmills have just started to venture onto the continental shelf.

One of the princpal limitation to mega windmills on land is that the neighbors get nervous when you say that you're planning to put a 100 meter monster in their backyard.  If you take them out onto the continental shelf you can find strong reliable offshore winds, and make real monsters that are 400-500 meters tall.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
