Gaia's revenge on Renewable Energy Policy

Not too long after our own little local 1-turbine Windy Power For the Masses experiment up on Gebbie's Pass was destroyed by a 'sudden change in wind direction', we hear of another Windy Irony.

As the inimitable Mark Steyn notes, who says Gaia doesn't have a sense of humour?

With a history like this, the insurance premiums on exposed turbine farms alone will be a significant chunk of operating expense. After all, it's like having a dam washed away...noooo - don't say that's happened too?

See this for a quick if irreverent survey of the current NZ state of play in Energy Policy.
