    If You Think Wind Energy is the Answer -- Think Again!

    This video is less than five minutes long, and if you've ever believed the hype that wind farms are the energy of the future, you'd be doing yourself a big favor by watching it.

    "What happens is of little significance compared with the stories we tell ourselves about what happens. Events matter little, only stories of events
    affect us.

    Hydro. Cleanest, most efficient, recyclable.
    When an argument cannot be sustained on proven facts, devolve to opinions and anger, that always works.

    Will technology deliver a way to ensure the wind blows at the right speed and consistency to power our needs?

    It is not a trick question. It is an illuminating question.

    In Europe every stream was filled with water wheels used for every possible need from hammering metals to grinding grains and powering weaves. Today Europe relies on more than moving water.

    No but the technology will develop to an extent that will ensure power storage over time regardless of the speed or consistency of the wind.

    The ocean is a good place to research.

    I see. Is it your plan to build enormous piles of extremely toxic metals so you can have "clean" wind energy?
