The answer was in the wind.

  1. 00:38 "with wind speeds at about 8km/sec" – that's 28,800km/hour. That definitely doesn't sound right.. Can anyone tell me why I am wrong?

  2. It is sad Germany, US and other rich coutrys should invest in middle East and Africa to let people live normal life. And with that avoid problems in own countrys. Invest for nothing in return of course.

  3. So you cant tell thats a really bad design for a windmill? How are thin sticks going to grab wind to turn ???? And thats why wind energy isnt sustainable….all because of bad windmill design and apparently not one 'engineer' has figured that out.
