Environmentalist are already pissed about that type of facility. Birds fly through the "hot zone" and get roasted in flight.



Kinda like getting killed by windmills, only different. Lol


Yep... everything has a potentially inherent hazard. Youtube, I think, has some videos of cooking birds in flight...

Can be solar powered !!! . . . there it is, time to ramp up the scale and start sucking up the pacific for the parched California areas . . .

Excellent idea. This will piss off the environmentalists though....You tell them that using sea water will offset any rise in ocean levels and watch their heads explode!
