The search for cheap, clean, renewable means of generating electricity has become the subject for serious discussion all over the world. Here, in a lighter vein, is why wind power might not work in South Africa.
It is a well known fact that most of the wind in this country comes from hot air; produced whenever one our bungling ministers or their wily spin-doctors make a speech, statement, or just verbalize their jumbled thoughts. Unfortunately, the wind from these overpaid, incompetent windbags is not reliable or trustworthy. Harnessing the wind they generate is thus not an option – as a wise Chinese guru once said: “It is an evil wind that blows no good.”
The above is just by way of introduction to our story, so settle down children, and pay attention.
