    I'd prefer the penguin burning power stations Unfortunatly the relaities of power genertion (especially in the US) sort of prevent Facebook from erectign it's own wind farm and just hoping the wind does not die down. Well, if it did, you could have all of these nasty coal burning power stations on standby to back up Facebook. Besides, Greenpeace is not all sweetness and light: Greenpeace Wages Red War (how many knew of their Communist connections???) (as a random Google). The same as many other older 'peace' organisations which recived quiet Soviet backing way back when. I for one would have supported CND's aims, but only if I saw them chaining themselves to nuclear base fences in Russia and China as well. Strange that they didn't. As the saying goes 'Follow the money'.

    Aww is ikkle gween peace a bit jealous that some geek made alot of money??

    I don't get how they take such a one sided and somewhat hypercritical view on one companies power usage (albeit high profile). What if your school, or every school in an area used power from coal burning power stations? Would Green Peace be making videos about how we should be building huge wind farms for every school? Will they be funding it?

    Irony of it, their video is hosted on youtube, are they powered by a wind farm?

    Let's implement ACLs on the power grid so we can politely decline electricity coming from coal power stations - that'll fix the problem.
