The article goes on to mention that it would only take $1.3 trillion US dollars to create a line of windmills from Montana to New Mexico to generate enough electricity to handle the entire US forever.
Hm... $1.3t... You do the math... Iraq cost how much? How many oil-rich countries are still out there and how much would it cost to invade, occupy and control their oil supply?
I bet it is a lot more than $1.3 trillion dollars and all of that oil will run out sometime this century.
