IF; As AGW Proponents Say "It's AGW", How are the Wind Mills going to Fair?

If these people are so smart (OBAMA) in promoting wind power, what are going to happen to all these wind mills when the storms hit?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: agw; globalwarming; windmill
Can't wait to see what happens. Any predictions?

Hopefully they’ll all get picked up by the storm and smashed into the White House.

Oh, hell, as smart as those people are, they'll just build them underground, where the big winds can't damage them. ;)

Smart engineers design these complex machines and they will automatically stop and feather the blades like they’re supposed to do.

At the start of the Eagle’s game, they showed the modern windmills atop Eagle stadium and gave a green energy plug. However, even though the wind was whipping the flags around, the windmills were stationary. What a complete waste of money.

Great, lets see what happens.

I suspect no matter how smart an engineer is, that is just theoretical, With the number of these things that we are building, based on shear numbers we are still going to have hundreds of these fail.

Windmills designs would have to be absolutely perfect to be reliable. Just too many opportunities for failure.

You know, Jimmy Carter pulled the same thing. There was a wind mill they setup in Cleavland next to the science center there.

It was turning, it looks really cool and when asked how much power does it put out for the science center. The answer was nothing, it is too expensive to use.

I just love these smart engineers.

They are going to connect every other windmill to the next one and blow that darn hurricane back out to sea.

Yeah, and how many were assembled and built by union booger eaters to lazy to do it right?

Feathering or not, you're right - I'll bet a lot of them mess up.

I don’t know about that, but when ever you put a ton of things out there in this situation, you are going to loose alot of them, just like cars.

They were built by engineers too.

Right next to the solar cells that would also get damaged in the storms.
