    vt overstepped its bounds by even considering safety issues.  i think that's crazy....but so is the atomic energy act of 1954, and the use of nuke power altogether.

    •   It depends on the Feds (0+ / 0-)

      It sucks, but that's US law. Here in California we are being forced to use crappy polluting fuels from the rest of the country because too few want to do anything about climate change.  

      As you say, yet more crazy policy

        awhile back about one of your universities (CalTech? One of the UC's?) developing vertical wind technology that looked promising. Based on the air flow dynamics of flocking birds, each vertical 'screw' tower receives positive help from its neighbors to keep its 'screw' turning. Improving efficiency by something north of 50%. In "Wind Farms" where as many as a dozen units occupy a single acre it looks to be quite conservative land use as well. You could always grow corn or melons in between them if you really wanted.

        Dang... used to keep these links somewhere...
