I am a little green, I suppose. I turn off lights when I leave the room, try to think of ways of eating up less power, and so on.
I like the idea of windmills, though only for small use; having a farm of them doesn’t make a lot of sense because the losses are so great when you try to pump the electricity from the farm (generally remotely located) to where it’s needed — I learned about this from a Berkeley researcher, before you accuse me of being a neocon or anything. From what I can tell, wind power is better on an individual basis, like solar cells on a house.
Yikes. I mean, yikes.
Tip o’ the windbreaker to Dan Durda.
