The UMPI wind turbine is broken again.
This is what happens when a politically correct "lovefest" replaces empirical study and responsible investing:
"The University prepared carefully for a discussion of the wind project at the September meeting of the Trustees. It asked permission for a $2 million total cost project that would install a mid-size wind turbine on campus property. The president and CFO were armed with data and prepared for the wide variety of questions that the project could legitimately have raised, including the possibility of instinctive dislike of wind power or too bold a campus entrepreneurial activity. Instead of a grilling, UMPI encountered a love fest."
