Speaking of democracy... it's a fucking joke. Do you think the majority of people would support what amounts to a ban on people putting up small wind turbines on their own property? No? Well that won't fucking stop them from passing a bill to make it happen. You'll get up to 5 years in prison and a 50k fine for putting up a wind generator on your own property. And that's not a joke. More people need to get mad about this shit and spread the word.

Ronald Reagan says: "Global warming is a fucking globalization tactic from the Left. Man is only responsible for like .05% of carbon emmissions. It's just an excuse for the Dems to increase the size of government and take away our rights, just like the Reps and their 'War on Terror'. You live in Massachusetts? You poor baby. I'm surprised your soul hasn't been taxed yet."

Ahaa! Global warming is a complete con you fuckers! We are still coming out of the last ice age. Polar ice caps? Unheard of in the history of the earth. If everybody put up wind generators it would disrupt the natural weather patterns. Thick fucks haven't got a clue.

I don't remember Ronald saying that.

Just think about the fucking retartedness of this, though. They're essentially banning you from using the wind. Does this not bother anyone? Only corporations may use the wind.

Just as a heads up, there's another bill for taxing the internet plodding on through. Likely it will amount to a tax on emails.

It doesn't matter what anyone does, the Earth has it's own agenda. Full stop. Fuck everybody. It don't matter.

It's not an environmental issue. This is the government telling you that you can't use the wind! There will be a tax on kites next, followed by the one on breathing.

I mean, read the thing. You put a windgenerator on your property (farmers have been using windpower to pump water for over a century) and you face 5 years in prison and a 50k fine. Prison time, for being so selfish as to not be utterly dependent on the corporation for your power. It's amazing this can even be proposed. The nation is fucked beyond all recognition.

Most regulation on wind farms around the world is concerned with environmental impact. From the behaviour of fish on of shore farms to migratory bird paths.

This culminated in the infamous decision to block a large-scale windfarm (by a corporation) because it was estimated an endangered species of bird would be killed by the turbines at the rate of 1 every 10 years.

That was not in the spirit of the legislation but at least in other places it's in the same spirit as you would assess a plan for a new house to make sure it had proper plumbing not in the interests of the builder but for those who already chose to live in the vicinity well before this new house.

I may have missed the point slightly but normally there is some good regulation (usually decided by local governments, councils, shires) to stop the dumbarses of this world creating hazards for themselves and people around them. The sort that would build one so close to a public road that should it fall in that direction, would have the potential to hit a passing car.

My theory for the last few years has been that wind power and solar panals will have to be zoned out of existance by shitty bylaws before they became popular. It seems to be happening now. Also, if you build a deck without permission, they simply tell you to take it down and may only take further action if you don't. You don't get 5 years in prison. The state is willing to spend 300-400 k on prison time to punish someone for putting up a wind generator!

I think we will see something do with solar panels soon, as they become economical. If they are not effectively banned, they will be regulated in some way so they must be hooked to the grid, rather than allowing the homeowner to be off the grid. I'll put $100 on it.
