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

There seems to be a problem with many of the Obama stimulus proposals that remaining industry simply doesn't have the capacity to crank up production quickly enough to spend the sort of money being bandied about as being required for stimulus purposes.

Do you have any data on what level of windpower capacity increase the industry can actually achieve in the short term?  Obviously longer term, industrial capacity will increase - but the stimulus requirement is precisely for a very short term boost to economic activity to counter the current recession.

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?
