It will only work if you want it to work

Wind Turbines At The Runaway Bay Sports Centre

According to the Gold Coast monomedia [7/10/09], the Gold Coast City Council has received a report (written by ARUP) which concludes that "council would need to spend $650 million on turbines to power its operations from Coolangatta to Yatala."

How much does the Federal Government tip into the coffers of the fossil fuel industry again?
$4 billion?

$650 million sounds quite reasonable.
