Quote of the Day: Wind Turbine Edition

This quote from Tam is downright golden:

Likewise, wind turbines are not meant to actually be an efficient way to supply the power grid, rather they’re prayer wheels for New Age iBuddhists, their whirring blades drawing white guilt from the atmosphere and pumping it safely underground. This is why they put them out in farm fields in the country and not, say, off Martha’s Vinyard or out on the back nine, in view of the clubhouse: What good is a shrine if you don’t have to make a pilgrimage to get to it?
