James Lovelock

Environmental heretic:

We never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable, nor did we expect the Greens to cast aside our priceless ecological heritage because of their failure to understand that the needs of the Earth are not separable from human needs. We need take care that the spinning windmills do not become like the statues on Easter Island, monuments of a failed civilisation.

What he doesn’t (or at least didn’t) understand is that they want civilization, and humanity itself, to fail.

    I think on the documentary ‘Windfall’ they mentioned that the companies that are erecting these wind turbines only have support contracts that go out for 15-25 years — something like that. That just begs the question: What happens when the contracts run out? If they aren’t renewed do they just leave the towers sitting out there?
