"The windmills of your mind" is the title of a March 1 piece in The Economist. Mark Jacobson of Stanford proposes that wind farms off the coast of Louisiana would "steal energy" from hurricanes, reducing their strength somewhat and also reducing the force of storm surges. The wind farms would also generate electricity.
Sounds like a good idea to me. Now if only someone could devise a way to reduce the damage caused to public education and women's rights in Louisiana brought on by Gov Bobby Jindal and his Republican co-conspirators.
