Albert Einstein famously quipped: "There are two things that are infinite: the universe, and human stupidity".

Thank you for reaffirming Einstein.

Since I'm such an idiot could you explain to this poor idiot why? Please.

Finally the adults who have taken Engineering 101 have started to step in and impose some reality checks on the lunacy of "alternative energy".

India has started to hold the wind power generators to account: http://www.bloomberg...face-fines.html

Also, to see how this affects us more closer to home: http://quixoteslasts...ere-in-ontario/

For those that still harbour illusions regarding the integrity of "science" and the credibility of those that self identify as scientists, this article in "Nature" should be of interest. The state of play in "science" has become so bad, and the corruption so extensive, that even scientists are openly ridiculing science.

When the argument gets too close for comfort, the charlitans of science usually refer to "peer review" as the final argument underpinning the supposed integrity of science. This article puts the nail into that coffin.

Used car salesmen and lawyers have real competion when facing "scientists".

I get your gist, canuck. In my layman mind, I understand and favor your points made. My science teacher wife/former research scientist and I have had long talks about this very subject, and her insight has enlightened my understanding about the natural cycle of the environment along with the corruption of blinded scienific ideals in many fields and education. Your communist and nazi parallels were dead on for me.
