Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, we're just vegetarians, in a world where carnivores are allegedly at the top of the food chain.  Funny that all carnivores ultimately rely on herbivores for their food chain to exist at all, and yet hold those herbivores in contempt.  Funny how also there is a growing queue to join the EU whilst the USA has to buy its friends - and they are the most unsavoury of friends at that.

Yes maybe there will end up being some kind of a world resource war, which the EU will be ill-equipped to fight.  Staying on the sidelines of that may not be such a bad idea.  Enough world wars have been fought on European soil.  The sooner the EU becomes food and energy self-sufficient the better.  If it's going to be every "man" fighting for himself, then those with the least external dependencies have the least to worry about.

Putting up wind turbines wholesale puts you on the front line, J., whatever the "sexier" investment bankers and CDO traders might say.
