Are you tired of wind farms? Y or N?

Wind Farms - Yes or No. UK Poll by David Cameron. Do you support off shore wind farms? Or in David's words, are you tired of them?

We've tried them in the US and they cost an imperial fuckton more than they're worth.

We've had wind power for decades, and capacity is still being added at a growing rate every year. Texas alone has about 13 gigawatts of capacity. Like everything else the technology has improved quite a bit, making it more cost effective.

But it was first when you can get government support for it they started to sprout

i dont see why thats a problem
incentivising the adoption of developing technologies is essential to the growth of those technologies as well as the countries ability to stay competitive in the future

integrating them into existing/new structures seems like a much better idea.

A comparison can be made to nuclear technologies. The U.S. government invested more than 25 billion before the first commercial plants were produced. Since then they've gotten more improved.

Nuclear is even more alluring because wind turbines have fundamental issues that prevent them from enhancing efficiency that are well researched. Only reduction in cost is from reducing the material cost, or reducing losses in storage or transfer, which aren't likely to substantially reduce (though storage may come down because of the companionship with solar futures).

Nuclear has thermodynamic limits, but it is incredibly potent as-is, and a slight improvement in materials can lead to a dramatic improvement in power output (say if the operating temperature can be bumped from 100C to 200C, the efficiency goes from like 30-40% to 50% or higher)

Yeah it would be good
