Re: Ecotricity

There seems to be a bit of a windmill backlash building from unexpected sources. A lot of people (including alternative energy types) are saying that they'll never generate enough power. I was thinking about this stuff the other day, and it occured to me that we should be investing loads in providing solar power in Africa -- doing our R&D there and basically giving it away to them in vast quantities. Also, I still think they should add dynamos to treadmills and exercise bikes in gyms across the world...
