A new agricultural revolution...or: The benefit of green energy (1)....

Each farmer his own windmill..... on each mountain top.
Construction of a windmill 100 m high (without blades), Fichtelgebirge, Germany, 2007.
Leasing land to an energy company for constructing a windmill gives a much higher profit with less work

Scenic hunger for energy:
Similarly, the increasing cultivation of rape-seed serves to produce diesel fuel - with doubtful consequences for the CO2 balance (see National Geographic Magazine 10/2007). On the other hand, the decreased growth of other crops due to lack of space in Germany already leads to increased prices of milk products and beer
