      Did you see the video where oil was coming out of the wind turbines making a huge mess? There's another video of strong winds wrecking the turbines and causing millions of dollars in damage to the equipment. I like the idea of wind usage but a new method has to be created.

      Funny we have had them in this area for years and we dont have those problems, perhaps the video is trying to steer people in a certain direction

      Wind makes at least some sense, although personally I think it would make a lot more sense to put smaller turbines on individual properties than big ones centrally. If nothing else it means the problem of transporting the electricity largely goes away.

      Solar is great in theory but at present needs all sorts of rare elements that have to be mined and transported.

      Both suffer because neither are guaranteed. If it's not windy the turbines don't generate anything. If it's not sunny enough solar panels don't generate anything. So you still need something to work with when natural energy doesn't deliver the goods.

      The idea of getting rid of fossil fuels completely is a grand idea but it's not going to happen in a hurry. If the government decides to simply throw unlimited amounts of cash at its new pet project the chances are what will happen is a few very well connected individuals will become incredibly rich, a few corporations will do incredibly well out of it all, and the end result is that the laws of physics will still represent the same barrier they are now. Throwing untold amounts of money at a problem with little accountability generally isn't a good way to achieve much, and typically governments (of any persuasion) aren't renowned for their abilities to deliver the goods on large scale projects.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Land in Manhattan doesn't need to be cleared for solar panels. Why not just do that to some area outside NYC and then pump the power in? I don't get it!

      Or just put a load of them on the buildings already there.

      Of course the trend of making office blocks out of steel and glass, in a place where they sit in the full glare of the sun, isn't particularly clever. Gardeners call places like that greenhouses, and they are known for getting warm. So then you need loads of power to run the air conditioning in an attempt to keep it cool. For good measure places like that are often open-plan so if one person is sick the air conditioning picks up their germs and blows them all over everybody else.
