Penguin Bank wave/wind farm finally breaks into a Honolulu newspaper
by Larry Geller
At last, there is a story in the Star-Bulletin today, Seattle company looks at Hawaii for wave power.
This project was first reported in a Disappeared News article on December 5, 2008 and then in three followup articles:
Wouldn’t it be sad if we persist in blathering on about “initiatives” and “innovation” and “high-tech” while outside companies come here and begin to install their own alternative energy plants in our waters? Doesn’t the state government find this a bit embarrassing?
We have a fragile power grid and lots of talk, while these folks have already filed papers to begin their project in our backyard.
Perhaps the Seattle company could install a wind turbine on the 5th floor of the State Capitol to harness all the hot air.
At least I mentioned it on the 8th ;)
When will the "News" catch up?
