Science, bitches. Consider

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Actually, when the wind hits builldings and other obstructions, it speeds up the rotation of the Earth. If we keep building windmills and large objects, the planet will spin faster, until the effects of gravity start to get cancelled out around the equator, allowing us to build ever taller objects. Eventually the planet will spin so fast that we will be thrown from its surface.

Which in turn will decrease the amount of objects for the wind to hit, thus slowing the earth back down. Everything is a cycle.

That's it... With devil man robe master and this piled up with so much of the past. I have to declare I am a technocrat without any doubts.

We can't user solar power either. Those solar collectors actually pull the sunlight right out of the air, eventually daylight will become a lot dimmer. This will cause people to squint in order to see, thus creating premature crows feet. With people looking less attractive from this wrinklature, there will be less dating and less sex. The human population will dwindle into oblivion all because some tree-hugging democrats want to look all futurey with nifty cool solar panels.

We should just stick with our infinite supply of good ol' fossil fuel just like God intended.

I don't think I get the science lesson.
But after being allowed to take part in the space program...

It's good to know we've allowed other apes a seat in the House Of Representatives Dodgy
