PDP #60: Share the Wind

I've previously posted a photo that included the WindShare turbine, but here's one of its own from an uncommon angle. The turbine itself is one of two urban wind turbines in the Greater Toronto Area - the other one is in Pickering, on the grounds of Pickering Nuclear Generating Station - and, as it's not operated by city staff, it continues to provide emission-free electricity during the present strike.

That's good, because it doesn't look nearly as good when it's turned off - and practically, isn't electricity only a bit more of an essential service than garbage collection? Cities don't tend to work so well when they become cesspools. That's the sort of environment cholera likes!
