Let's see, as far as the energy argument goes against coal fired generators. How many birds and bats are killed by wind generators? Did you know that at the University of Oregon, the student gym had their treadmills modified to produce electricity? Imagine humans tethered to a generator system like so many donkeys on an old gristmill. PETA would be outraged at using livestock for such a chore, and the environmentalists are in a total tizzy about the wind generators harming birds and bats. As far as the printed word going out of style, it's not so much style as the electronic age making books obsolete. Oh yes, the ELECTRONIC AGE!! Gee, we still need electricity! Imagine a Starbucks where coffee can't be brewed & Kindles are un-kindled.
