    A good stress test – don’t think I would be comfortable standing underneath that giant though, as I have a fear of being crushed.

    =================================

    “Norwegian company Wind Catching Systems is developing a floating, multi-turbine technology for wind farms that could generate five times the annual energy of the world’s largest, single wind turbine.”

    Far out! Far up!


  3. Those spiky trucks are icons for the new environmentalism, obsessed with covering the world with giant machines that kill scenery, blink red all night and chop birds & bats during the day.

    And don’t forget all the insects that smear their blades. Altering the lower food chain isn’t trivial, but wind engineers are more worried about damaged blade-edges. That’s what “green” has come to. Just don’t talk about that part. It’s easier to keep up the charade of planetary concern that only sees gases.

    It’s all a big, ugly experiment to see if fractional electric energy usage might drop global temperatures by a fraction of a degree. Physics says it’s a pipe dream but the industry has too much momentum to admit it.

    And Big Wind doesn’t bank on lack of it blowing, like Europe just experienced again: https://www.wsj.com/articles/energy-prices-in-europe-hit-records-after-wind-stops-blowing-11631528258 (more about energy-sanity than money)

    The lengths taken just to transport turbine blades are also evidence of the huge role fossil fuels play in their unsightly construction.

    Typical response from woke faux environmentalists: “Go away, you racist!” “We will cancel you like Dr. Seuss!”
