Offshore WIND, not OIL

After the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the huge environmental catastrophe it is leading to, more and more voices are now demanding offshore wind as a paliative.

This sounds like a good idea as the important offshore wind potential is still completely untapped in the United States. Meanwhile, the European Union installed more than 500 MW in 2009 only.

The main problem with offshore wind is that it can to its detractors ruin a perfect view. I guess floating wind turbines would solve this problem as they could be implented in much deeper waters.

Random wisdom

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.
