Dear Anonymous, windmills cost money and generate electricity on a part time basis. I have examined various solutions to the liability of wind, and have noted that the cost of reliable wind generated electricity will be higher than the cost of nuclear power. You have failed to note the depth of my argument, but you have misrepresented my conclusions and having created a strawman, have proceeded to descried it a s stupid.
It`s plain stupid to not use windpower and instead create massive amounts of toxic waste which will cost much more to future generations than any other source of energy.
Stop beeing stupid for your childrens sake!
Nuclear energy kills people...thousands of maintanance workers have died since mankind startet to use nuclear energy for civil purpose.
France (and Europe) seems to be a little bit more educated on that issues than Americans who still claim nuclear energy to be anywhere near green.
There are other alternatives...dragonfly windturbines is a start.
TU Delft is working on the laddermill project to use jet streams.
In Italy they are investigating kite karusells www.kitegen.com.
Another alternative...for fuel, diesel and jetfuel is bio-oil.
The breakthrough was 2008 by a German biologist. The technology to breed plancton in open pools is available. phyto plancton is valuable biomass which can be burned or oil (70%!!!) can be extrated and refined to any product that can be made out of oil...cheaper than oil drilling too and contrary to nuclear energy it is safe, clean and co2 neutral.
You can feed it to life stock...it is more healthy than sojabeans...more productive for fuel than sugarcane and burns even more emission free.
Aquacultures can be cheap now...infact the biggest prawn producer uses the open pool design from the Germans to feed its fish.
Food will be cheaper and if it is done right the poorest countries in the world would produce this renewable ressource and trade it fair!!
BioGas can produce Energy.
How does it come that all nuclear enervy supporting folks are old men?
Would it be uncool to depend on plancton product.

Nuclear energy kills people
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "The cost of wind":
You allege without evidence the death of thousands of people due to the operation of the nuclear energy industry. This is nothing more than a wild, unproven charge.
You claim that I am being stupid but offer no justification for the insult. You offer bio-oil and bio-gas as solutions, ignoring the fact that I have repeatedly argued that biological sourced fuels violate sound environmental principles. You ignore what I write and then you call me stupid.
Finally you ask. "How does it come that all nuclear enervy supporting folks are old men?"
Perhaps it is because older men do not get carried away by emotional arguments that are not fact based or logical.
Some neat videos
