Last week, we posted the results of a report from the John Muir Trust claiming that wind power is a lot more useless than the wind industry—or anyone invested in renewable energy, really—would like us to believe. Naturally, we were contacted by the American wind industry which wanted to aggressively refute the claims and spread the wind turbine gospel.

It really makes you think about how living, literally off the grid for so long can be turned into an opportunity to bypass the step we are all trying to make now (in transforming our wasteful daily ways) and go straight to sustainable living and using renewable energy sources. Kudos to the team for putting this together!
