” for your pains, you get burned and looted by the dependent class while your 911 calls go unanswered by the governing class, both of which you fund.” The Day After Labor :: SteynOnline

By 2012, one tenth of the adult population had done not a day’s work since Tony Blair took office on May 1st 1997 – a decade and a half earlier. In such households, the weekday ritual of rising, dressing, and leaving for gainful employment is entirely unknown. In Ferguson, Missouri, the “conversation”, as they say on MSNBC, is between the dependent class and the governing class that ministers to them and keeps them in line. If you’re a convenience store owner, your low-skilled service jobs are the only labor on offer, and, for your pains, you get burned and looted by the dependent class while your 911 calls go unanswered by the governing class, both of which you fund.

“Wind generators are not turbines, because there is no nozzle ring to direct any wind on to a series of turbine blades fixed to a shaft.” Renewable Energy in perspective: Solar and Wind power | Watts Up With That?

While I am here, you mention the word “turbines”, which you correctly use in relation to steam powered generators, with the high pressure steam raised in boilers being fuelled by coal, “biomass”, nuclear fission, or gas. Wind generators are not turbines, because there is no nozzle ring to direct any wind on to a series of turbine blades fixed to a shaft. They are simply propellers, and their simplicity may be part of the problem in gaining much useful energy from them. Far better, and more correct to refer to them as wind powered generators, or… bloody windmills, as I prefer.
