i think we would have to build a whole lot more turbines to compensate for the drag of the trees we have cut down the last century across the globe.
BTW, if there would be nothing slowing down the wind/jet stream, it would be speeding up all the time, approaching light speed eventually.

A major document was released by the IPCC outlining the current affects on climate change, and they are not good. For specific effects on humans: "Food security is highlighted as an area of significant concern. Crop yields for maize, rice and wheat are all hit in the period up to 2050, with around a tenth of projections showing losses over 25%.""

+ - Ford Just Destroyed Cadillac's Ad Praising Rich Guys Who Work All The Time->

Submitted by Lasrick
Lasrick (2629253) writes "This is great. Ford destroys that stupid Cadillac ad that shows a rich guy banging on about how hard it is to be a hard-working rich American guy, but how ultimately it's so much better than being a European who gets two weeks off every August. It's that attitude that because rich people work hard, they assume that non-rich people don't. And also that the only thing admirable is working hard so that you can get rich. Many people work hard but want their work to make the world a better place, not just so that they accumulate wealth. Ford made a great ad."

1/that's why i called them 'closest to socialism'.
2/the state = the people. (or rather : the state should be the people, it mostly is not : the market forces the much money and thus power into too few hands)
3/'Markets are self organizing systems' HAHAHAHAHAH THAT's a good one. GIVE AN EXAMPLE.
