    Pauls podcast Emergence Summit 2012.  Paul makes some very good points in this and its worth listening to.  What it boils down to is that we need to find alternatives to fossil fuel energy sources, and better ways of using the energy that we can collect, or condemn the next generations to even worse inequality than we experience in our own time.   However I think that the chance of some one who is against wind energy sitting down and listening to a 26 minute talk and working out the message is very small.
