.Why is it that German Chancellor Angela Merkel looks so much like another well known German Chancellor from about 70 years ago? In her posture, her gestures, and even sometimes in her facial expressions, the resemblance is a little creepy.

The Department of Energy says that wind energy creates jobs. In fact,
But all that means is that wind energy is totally inefficient and costly.
I wonder if anyone has pointed out to the DOE that hiring people to turn hand-crank generators would create even more jobs per kilowatt-hour. Hand-cranked energy is the route to full employment for all Americans!
How many hand-cranking Americans does it take to run an electric arc furnace to make steel? I'll bet it would take the entire population of the state of Michigan to generate enough electricity to satisfy the need for steel in Detroit.
Oh wait. I don't think they need steel in Detroit anymore.
