“Systems for producing 0.0% energy at low wind speed” (United Kingdom)
Feb 15, 2011
Editor’s note: There’s a new website which is both brilliant and hilarious. Even the name tickles: fenbeagleblog by Beagle Blog Cartoons. (The beagle cartoon, here, is from their site, with a little editorializing by us.)
The guy’s a master satirist—whoever he (she) is. Anyone who quotes Lewis Carroll and Dr Seuss liberally, and writes verse in the spirit of both, is worth a roar of approval!
The following was pinched (“borrowed”) from the site. (I would have sought permission from the creator—and heaped praise!—but in the final satire of all, there’s no contact information.)
We’ve bookmarked the site. Many of the “slings and arrows” are aimed at British politicians. Nevertheless, even if you’re unfamiliar with the individuals being lampooned, you will appreciate the gentle (and not so gentle) mockery of an industry whose claim to legitimacy is swiftly approaching 0.0% credibility.
Editor’s note: AWEO.org, above, does not refer to the American Wind Energy Association. It refers to a site run by Eric Rosenbloom, called “A Problem with Wind Power.” Eric is the President of National Wind Watch and is responsible for the NWW website.
