Re: C5's Fear of Wind Towers durring a Collapse

The single greatest danger during a collapse... is wild fires.

Every inexperienced person will be starting fires. Fires still happen for the experienced. But any unmaintained wind tower is a fire waiting to happen... and what will start a forest fire faster that spewing wind supported, melting plastic, thrown long distances.

My morning thought. Clearing combustibles near the house is one of this years jobs.
So tell me oh wise one  ;)
Where are there no forest fires, no tornadoes, no earthquakes, and you are not to close to the coast for a massive hurricane to stall out over you, you are not in a flood plain, you have a long enough growing season without summer wet bulb temps that kill, you have consistent spring water, you are not too close to a large population center AND you are not immediately downwind of a nuke puke plant (or nuclear weapons launch facility or strike target) or a similar chemical facility?
I have given up trying to figure where the safest place is. :icon_scratch:

A bigger problem with wind towers is that they advertise the existence of a resilient homestead and invite morons with guns to take a pot-shot.  The main reason I have not built solar arrays on my property is that I am not there all the time to provide security. We have enough vandals and nihilistic assholes with weapons in these times. I can't imagine it will be better when TSHTF.

My wind generator has no plastic whatsoever, outside of some insulation on the diodes and the wires, which I can't see becoming a problem. Where I live, not enough wind is the bigger problem.

RE
No cats on my keyboard.
Problems are many. Spring is almost here and the workload has increased drastically.
Additionally I have been having a back and forth with Survival Acres about our predicament. 
AND FINALLY, I guess I'm a little tired of the Diner in that:
1.  Most regular contributors (not yourself ;)) on the Diner lack any amount of HUBRIS. I being highly educated and successful LEARNED ONE BIG LESSON in life - I'm generally wrong and an idiot on most everything, EVEN if I think I know something. Too many here think they are smarter than anyone else - and it gets old FAST :-[.
2.  Most regular contributors only want to post something and move on. Not much discussion except for you and Eddie trading insults (which is mildly entertaining - keep up the good work!!).
When I find something to say without being to snarky I will put it in.
Back to the wood pile.

I started out on this site trying to treat everyone with respect and assuming I might learn something from almost everyone. If I have a hubris problem (and it isn't a lack of hubris that's the problem, but rather the opposite) it's because my opinion of most of the content here has gone way down as I've waded through it over the years.

Who was is that said the medium is the message? McLuhan, yeah. He was right about the internet, even though he died before it was invented.

There is some good content, still. Probably not mine, though. Not anymore. I am arrogant and hateful. And growing more so. I no longer suffer fools gladly. Good luck, brother, May your harvest be a good one. Take care of your back. It's the only one you have. (Mine hurts right now, and has for weeks.) I badly want to shoot some zombies. Bring on the apocalypse.

I will gladly admit to being an idiot sometimes.
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

Like moths to a flame  :coffee:
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

C5- Low EROEI to No EROEI
« Reply #553 on: March 21, 2019, 05:56:58 AM »
I think I will use this next article

https://consciousnessofsheep.co.uk/2019/02/26/turning-low-eroi-oil-into-no-eroi-oil/

Top lines were...

" The trouble with fracking is that it produces too much light oil (including natural gas condensates) and too little of the really useful mid-range oil.  The – apparently unsatisfactory – work around has been to blend US shale oil with Canadian and Venezuelan ultra-heavy oils in an attempt to create something – at additional cost – akin to the sweet crude that comes (or at least used to come) gushing out of a conventional oil well."


"In the brain-dead commentary sections of the mainstream media, the reason Venezuela is in crisis is simply “socialism;” although those making this crude analysis would reject the similar claim that the crisis in Haiti is “capitalism” or that the travails of Somalia are “libertarianism.”
