Windmills are the future of energy generation, apparently


Some feel-good news for your enjoyment, this time about how wind power can save the planet, or something. It seems that for the low, low price of less than two cents per day, the U.S. would be able to generate something like 300 gigawatts of electricity using windmills. That translates to an 11 percent reduction in natural gas consumption, saving 4 trillion gallons of water every year, and a 25 percent reduction of carbon dioxide omissions by 2030.

The rest is some anti-Bush talk about how the administration has ruined America and has slowed our adoption of such alternative fuel sources. Relax, he’ll be gone soon. And then all our problems will be solved, right, just like when the Dems re-took Congress two years ago? Politics is broken here.
