Michael Bloomberg and T. Boone Pickens: Two Windbags

Posted by redsatellite on August 21, 2008

Enough already.

I get that we need alternative energy sources. I do. But the reality of some of these solutions- like Mayor Bloomberg’s and T. Boone Picken’s visionare ridiculous. With Bloomberg: at least he’s having second thoughts.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is backing off his suggestion to put windmills on city bridges and rooftops after newspapers mocked the idea with photo illustrations of turbines on the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building.

There are aesthetic considerations,” Bloomberg said. “No. 2, I have absolutely no idea whether that makes any sense from a scientific, from a practical point of view.”

Gee…Ya think? (Yes…it’s comforting to know that billionaires like Oprah Winfrey, T. Boone Pickens, and Michael Bloomberg can be stupid too.)

If you’ve ever been to Palm Springs, Ca like I have…you’ll know what I mean. Hundreds of huge windmills dot the Coachella Valley – meandering to and fro, up and down the desert floor- ERASING any vestiges of the desert’s natural beauty.

Trust me…it’s a complete blight on the landscape….urban OR rural.
