John Deere Wins with Wind

It may surprise some...but most of America is farms. We have more farmland than anything else. And a lot of that farmland is windy farmland. But while wind is buying viagra in the santo domingo a stable and fairly high-yield crop, it requires huge start-up investment. So if you're a company that has a good relationship with farmers, a lot of money, and a tiny bit of foresight, you're in a good position to sale cialis do some hefty financing and ensure excellent returns for the buy viagra using paypal forseable future.

Which is exactly where John Deere comes in. They've been loaning farmers, or groups of farmers, money to build wind turbines on their land for the last five years. The results have been exciting. The wind farms don't disturb any habitat that isn't already irreperably altered and farmers get another income that requires very little of their land.

CNN's coverage of the deal shows Deere paying for half of a $10,000,000 project, a bank loan covering most of the rest, and farmers themselves putting up just $10,000 a piece. John Deere makes almost all of the money for the first ten years, while the farmers get a modest increase in their income. Then, after the project is completely paid off, the farmers get to sit back and rake in the cash while the rest of healthcare canadian pharmacy us benefit with a much more robust energy portfolio.

Developing rural america, supporting farmers, making tons of cash and going green. Win Win Win Win situations are great.

for stepping in where governments have failed us.

Government? HA! This is an example of a company filling the demand in a market. Here's to more companies doing something like this and the red tape bureaucracy staying out.
A good investment

Why is it that the retards running hedge funds purchase CDO's with a lower return than these wind farm arrangements. If investors were truely intelligent than this type of arrangment could be done everywhere all over the world repeatedly
Are there risks ascociated with wind far

Interesting question posed in this thread -

Are there any potential climate issues in effectively removing large amounts of energy from our weather systems? Currently the amount of energy generated from wind farms is small, but if this increases dramatically, what will the knock-on effects be?
In response to Mark (question above)

There is nothing we do, can possibly do, that will have no impact. The very nature of our existence is we choice soft tab levitra only proven by the impact we make on our environment (our total surroundings, not just nature). Anything we do will always have an impact; so the idea is to minimise that impact.

It would take a lot of wind turbines to viagra side effect have any noticeable effect, hopefully it won't get to that stage (we should lower our energy "needs" in conjunction with moving to green energy sources).
What about GeoThermal?

I was thinking, if one could predict and stop natural disaster... wouldn't it be better than any green technology works?

The cause of all these is because the world is cracking apart... right?
