Windmills First – Tulips Next?

H.G. Wells Novel?

H.G. Wells Novel?

We might emulate the Netherlands first by our windmills, and not our bicycle lanes. Yesterday, our Mayor, Mike Bloomberg unveiled a first of its kind building with mounted wind turbines to be built in the Brooklyn Navy Yards. It will supposedly create 2,500 jobs and be the nations first multistory “green” industrial facility. (It wasn’t too long ago, one would have thought that term was contradictory). The design looks like something we read about in an H.G. Wells novel. Let’s hope the cost of construction will be far less than the energy it will create and the money it will save. If so, I applaud our Mayor for the creativity and finally identifying the highest and best use for the site.
