As I have stated many times, I do not want this blog to be political. So, please take the message about the evaporating European subsidies for "alternative energy" for what it is and not as a political statement.
I personally believe the United States needs both a different mix of energy sources and a smarter mix. But, given the current level of technology, wind is terribly inefficient and ineffective. There is no reason why we need to repeat the mistakes of other nations.
