Even if such a law actually does exist, which I doubt even if rent seekers with windmills are pushing hard for it, wind has a lot of downtime for maintanance so is rarely fully utilised anyway.
This discussion is really about wind blowing or not anyway. Imagined patterns in graphs from a portion of a continental grid which may have a policy promoting the use of wind really do not address the core issue of there always being some wind somewhere in a large enough distributed network. I'm not a big fan of wind power but it does have a place in an energy mix. Monocultures suck in generation. You end up one drought, miners strike or major transport blockage incident away from blackouts.
Libya did not seek nuclear weapons, nor was it providing anything better than "moral" support to any other terrorists.

If this ruling sticks then a major adjustment in AAPL's price is coming down the tracks. Should be good for roughly a 15-20% drop. At 16, AAPL's p/e is looking a little pricey in any case. Other tech perps are no doubt peering anxiously over their shoulders but AAPL is the standout bad actor.
they should pay tax somewhere... I do and most of the world does... it's that or death...
Correction: it's that and death.
Production, of course, has been reduced
Hence the earlier peak and hence people reading too much into it. There may be another larger peak, but for the moment peak production was 2008.
I'll state it again. Wind power in Germany is run as much as possible
That is not a correct statement and waving a few graphs around that do not prove it one way or another does not make it correct.
