I drove through Indio / Palm Springs on Tuesday and was aggravated, as I always am, at just how few of the zillions of government-subsidized windmills are actually turning. Saying that one in twenty were generating power would be generous. I know the wind was blowing because a few of them were turning.
On Thursday I drove back through and tried to take a video, though all I had was my iPhone.
You have to squint to see all the dead windmills in the back of the first shot. If you have never been to this site, you many not be able to comprehend just how far in the distance the dead masts go. Here is another shot from several miles further down the site
Here is my proposal. We make this whole area a National Park and call it "Corporate State Park." It would be at least as educational as any other National Park.
