Cool Picture of the Week

I love the juxtaposition in this marvellous picture.  The photographer named it driving to the future, which I think is really appropriate.  The sight of so many cars (one of the biggest polluters on the planet) heading towards this massive wind farm in San Gorgonio, California has a certain irony to it, don't you think? 

Here in the UK the opinion on wind farms is split down the middle.  While most people see them as a necessity of we are to produce a large percentage of our energy as close to carbon neutral as we can, many of the people who live near them say they are constantly annoyed by the low level but penetrating noises that they make. Personally, I think they look wonderful on our landscape and produce vital energy.  I don't live next to one though!
