Ridiculous. Advise review new stuff in the pipeline making wind mills obsolete. Home wind mills in Hawaii where everybody is crazy over their own space is nuts. Wake up people, "alternative" will never compete with crude oil. It's all BS.

Of course alternative energy will never compete with crude. You're missing the point. Dependence on one source of fuel (from a price-gouging entity) is what is slowly eroding the economy. Diversifying our energy sources is not just an option. It's an absolute necessity.

Open your mind, Hypocrisy. Crude will always be part of the solution. But your mentality is part of the bigger equation that has us paying through the nose for gas and electricity.

Wind, solar, etc. are all part of the REAL equation of the future. You either recognize this or get left behind with all the old farts babbling to themselves incoherently about how great life was when we had outhouses instead of "fancy" indoor plumbing.
