Here"s a good one-regarding wind turbines the various city gov'ts in the Minneapolis Metro installed to fight global warming. Quoted from the Star Tribune in Minneapolis-"The turbine in North St. Paul, near Hwy. 36, ran briefly "before it got too cold. It hasn't run consistently yet," said City Manager Wally Wysopal. "Anything in the air that has visibility like this turbine, people are expecting it to turn," he said. "It's been a little embarrassing to have it not turning on the windiest of days." the link:http://www.startribune.com/local/north/83506647.html
Check out the comments made by residents of our beloved liberal city...my favorite:"When (where) is global warming when you need it. Isn't global warming supposed to keep these turbines at a comfortable temperature ensuring they don't freeze up. I thought it was in the government mandated guidelines that the temperatures are no longer allowed to get this cold."
Oh, and these relatively small turbines are $417,000 apiece..x's 11. They could give me the money for 1 and I could pedal a stationary bike every day and produce more electricity than these things.
