Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
great diary jerome, you master bloggeur you!

Frank Schnittger:

I'm all for long term structural infrastructural enhancement accelerating as capacity increases - but how efficient and capable is the wind industry in terms of turning the US economy around within a 3/4 year electoral; cycle?

they could make enough good faith progress in 2-3 years to show bankable (wink, nudge) potential, right?

it's capable of snowballing, especially if a fashion item. personally i think the toy industry should get behind it, mini windmills for kids, lego, whatever...


didm't FDR put up all those well windmills you can still see rusting out on the prairies?

i remember seeing a cover on co-evolution quarterly, stewart brand's periodical, showing a pic of L.A. rooves in the 1920's, bristling with solar water heaters!

which, btw, should be right up there with home insulation and windmills, when you consider how much energy is carbonised heating water for daily needs.

massive blind spot...
