    Good post! To bad for those engineers, their only escape route was on fire. Windmills has its downsides as anything else. They also produce a low frequency vibration that makes cattle disturbed in a radius of several miles. I'll put my money on coal man, makes the sky go darkish brown and everything will have a nice dystopian touch, like it should in this day and age.

    Could be the generator was wired wrong or the wine ding was bad.
