Submission + - Wind power not always green

MattSparkes writes: "If wind turbines are planned carefully then they are a fantastic way to produce clean power, but if they are built without thinking then they may be more a part of the problem than the solution. When digging foundations for a turbine, a landslide was triggered, "That night almost half a square kilometre of bog slid 2.5 kilometres down the hillside, engulfing an unoccupied farmhouse and blocking two roads."."

"Today's robots are very primitive, capable of understanding only a few simple instructions such as 'go left', 'go right', and 'build car'." --John Sladek
