By the time we run out of oil, those windmills will have long
ago been sent to the scrap heap.  They don't last forever,
particularly ones deployed in the ocean in salt water.

Are you including the Chinese, Indians, and Africans in that

Cause if China ever starts consuming oil at the same per capita
rate that the US does, I think we're going to have some "issues".

But windmills at sea?  I don't think I'm buying it.

Been to the post that started this thread?  It's all about those
Scandinavian windmills and how they are not economically
viable ever with the govt subsidizing them at the rate of
9 to 18 cents/kwh.

 Per despen@verizon.net:

Neither was Ted Kennedy nor are the people on Cape Cod who are
worried about the effect on their ocean view.  But the technology
seems tb there bco the big money that's trying to build them.
