There has been some big promises made by governments when it comes to the concept of the wind farm. The wind turbine has been touted as a way to promote clean energy, but in fact these devices have an historical flair that goes back hundreds of years.

So there I was, driving through rural Nova Scotia (near Grand Pré and Wolfville, at the top of the Annapolis Valley) amid the fields of grain (OK, the empty fields where grain would soon be growing) and the orchards with their still bare branches – and suddenly in the middle of nowhere, a portal!
You can soon add “taxi” driver to the long list of extinct jobs, along with moat digger and corset tightener, if predictions come true. The former head of Research and Development at GM, Larry Burns expects to see driverless vehicles in dealer showrooms by 2020.

American Apparel will tell you their ad with sexy swimsuit models slipping and sliding on their rooftop solar panels is to let everyone know how eco-friendly the company is (so you can feel real good about buying from them). But is there more to it?
