A Grove of Quaking Aspen?

Should you plant an aeolian tree in your Garden…?

You might like it. Take a look at some futuristic proposals…

Imagine a forest on a hillside!

I find the most interesting stuff in the Portuguese on-line newspaper, Expresso. The following link, Aeolean wind generators, presents a futuristic design of urban wind generators of a curiously attractive design.  Looking somewhat like cellphone antenna towers they can be placed in parks or on hillsides. I think a forest of these polished on the outside of the vanes might look like quaking aspens.  Who knows, this may have legs! – carlos


About carlos

I'm a curious person, of reasonable intellect, "on the beach" (retired) and enjoying my interest in anthropology, language, civil rights, and a few other areas. I've been a hippie/student/aerospace tech writer in the '60s, a witness to the Portuguese revolution in the ‘70s, a defense test engineer and witness to the Guatemalan genocide in the '80s, and a network engineer for an ISP in the '90s. Now I’m a student and commentator until my time is up. I've spent time under the spell of the Mesoamerican pyramids and the sweet sound of the Portuguese language. I've lived in Europe, traveled in Brazil, Central America, Iceland, New Zealand, and other places. My preferred mode of travel is with a backpack and I eat (almost) anything local. Somehow, many of the countries I have been to have had civil unrest (for which I was not responsible). I'm open to correspond with anyone who might share my liberal, humanist interests. I live in San Buenaventura, California.
