Susumu Shingu's wind-powered four windmills has a generator that produced electricity and illuminated these sculptures in Sanda, Japan. The 21 scupltures are designed to be set up by local people and to cause no damage to the environment. An individual sculpture comes in a crate and becomes a small wind-power station with four windmills and a generator. Drawings # 1 & 2

>solar "...The amount of power produced is directly related to the area of the solar panels exposed to sunlight. For instance, the panels supplied by Australia-Wide Solar are 1600mm x 800mm and each generates 155 watts of power. On its own this is not a significant amount of power, but hook a group of panels together in an array and the power generated becomes substantial. Harrison's conservative estimate is that 10 155-watt panels will generate about six kilowatt hours a day... By Nick Galvin April 20, 2006

>Singing Icebergs
Dr Vera Schlindwein

Sustained harmonic tremor signals were recorded by the seismographs of the German Neumayer Base seismological network in western Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. These tremor episodes, lasting up to 16 hours, were recorded up to 820 kilometers from the source. Their spectra show narrow peaks with fundamental frequencies ranging from 0.5 to 6 hertz, more than 30 integer harmonic overtones, and frequency gliding, resembling volcanic tremor. Frequency-wave number analysis suggested a moving source, which was recognized as iceberg B-09A traveling along the coast of eastern Antarctica. The most probable tremor sources are fluid-flow-induced vibrations inside the iceberg's tunnel/crevasse systems.

Here, citing excerpts from AP writer, Jeff Barnard's July 07 syndicated report: "at 9,000 feet at the crest of the Cascade Range, the air is some of the cleanest to be found anywhere in the United tates. But each breath-especially in the spring-can suck in tiny amounts of pollution from China and elsewhere in Aisa."

According to windwitness, UW Bothell Professor Dan Jaffe, are "chemical fingerprints" flowing East to West and West to East. According to Jeff, the Natural Resources Defence Council's Barbara Finamore who heads its China program, said the United States has an obligation to help; "The U.S., has outsourced much of its manufacturing to China and therefore outsourced the pollution inherent in that manufacturing, and that is what is coming back to haunt us."
