Windmills



Don Quijote is fighting wind power plants in Nagu.

There are five windmills where I live, and yes, I like them very much.

But no, I don't live in the very beautiful Aboland archipelago.

Don Quijote, could I be your Sancho Panza?

Tiens...une éolienne au fond. Cela suffit-il à alimenter Fécamp en électricité ? ;-)

Sancho Panza kaikessa yksinkertaisuudessaan oli kuitenkin maanläheisempi ja terveempi kuin Don Quijote, joka leijaili omissa sfääreissään. Jos siis valita pitäisi, olisin minäkin mieluummin Sancho Panza, vaikka välillä tulikin turpiin, yleensä isännän jästipäisyyden seurauksena.

Hi aunt, Don Quijote here, at last. Sorry it took me so long, but I had some trouble with my horse...

As I vehemently roared on my own blog, they don't belong in the ultra-sensitive nature of the Finnish archipelago. Wind wheels are nothing but savage visual polluters of first and nastiest degree.

A thing of beauty? That depends on the eye, I'll give you that... you like them, I don't. I see little pleasing in these plasticky wing-dings popping up on the tender horizon like poison fungus.

Wind power is obviously a great concept - but so patently flawed that it makes me reach for my lance. Giddy up, Rocinante!!!
