    Although I like the photo, I am not sure very much that this energy is better... to part of that spoil the landscape, and very much!!, when one of these giant fans dies, what happens with the residues? They are cleaner than the radioactive wastes, but also there are residues... And how much does each of these fans cost? what useful life do they have? how much energy do they provide? is just the relation costs benefits? I think that there are still many loose ends... And I am not a defender of the nuclear energy.

    it's just symbolic, llorenc. i'm not an expert but i know what i definately don't want and that is an extension of the operating times of these really dangerous plants.
    the f...ing waste is also a huge problem and we are not able to deal with it. we, the german government, have learnt nothing from tschernobyl over the years and we keep going and going with this highly dangerous stuff.
    i don't have an answer to be honest but it's not my job to have one...
    i understand your point and i'd really like to see these big windmills out in the sea rather than next to small villages...

    You must not have an answer, the politicians must give us an answer, and also we should know with how much money they fill the pockets with these big mills.
    In Catalunya we have two nuclear power stations and now they want to put a nuclear cemetery close to one of them... and very close to where me I live. Also we have a petrochemistry... I am of the same opinion than you. But the population has no answers to these questions and that is essential.

    We need to keep asking and pushing for a solution. As for this photo, Markus, I appreciate the symbolism and comp.

    Wonderful entry. A much better view than 3 Mile Island or Chernobyl.

    there is abundant information about wind generators available via the web -- for instance, http://www.greenlivingtips.com/articles/65/1/How-wind-turbines-work.html. wind power is a much better option than nuclear power, much kinder to the planet, and i for one do not have any problem with the visual impact. i like how they look. nuclear is essentially a way to boil water/create steam that leaves us with massively toxic, tremendously long-lasting residues, not to mention the occasional release of radioactive steam into the atmosphere and radioactive water into local streams/rivers. wind power involves no radiation and will never create another chernobyl.
