Pants full of macaroni!!: SUCK IT GREENIE-WEENIES
grokca: This just in : Mechanical things break.
The Faywood Assassin: I'm getting tired of everyone biatching about how ugly wind turbines look. Sure there are some issues (getting caught in their shadow can be very annoying from the strobe effect) but overall you have two choices:1) Ugly and clean, or2) Dirty and relatively invisible.This idea of some tiny, beautiful, and environmentally friendly power source does not exist.
Man On Fire: Obviously this means green energy is a failure and global warming is a hoax.
TomD9938: [cdn.physorg.com image 320x188]Fugly.
AloysiusSnuffleupagus: Any wind-power people have any thoughts about this:Why isn't part of the tower more firmly supported or connected to the footing than just being bolted?Like, bury another tube into the concrete footing and then slip the tower over it, or something similar? Cost? "This couldn't happen?"IANAE, just asking dumb questions.
simusid: Lyle Langley sold a $1M windmill to the town of Portsmouth RI and its transmission crapped out in about a year of operation. The town has no money to fix it and I drive by it idle 5 days a week.
oldfarthenry: Someone f**ked up with their bending moment/shear calculations on the foundation bolts.
