Prefer Einstein To Carlin
Mr. Strassburg’s comment on the cost of constructing one wind turbine was quite interesting; however, there’s a major flaw in his thinking. Every thing he wrote could just as well be applied to the construction of one oil-drilling rig. The materials needed have to be mined, smelted, forged, shaped, transported, etc. etc. And the price tag does not even include the cost of cleaning up a messy oil spill or deep ocean gush or a polluted atmosphere.
What amused me was his quoting George Carlin, whose only claim to fame is a 1972 monologue on seven curse words one can never say on TV.
As for me, I prefer to quote a more intelligent, knowledgeable person, Albert Einstein, who said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
