Climate love

World's largest wind turbine switched on

In the announcement by the China Three Gorges Corporation, the energy firm revealed that the MySE 16-260 turbine was the first of its kind to be installed at the offshore site.

Standing at a staggering 500ft (152m) tall, the mega-turbine looms over the Taiwan Strait and is also the turbine of its size to be linked up to a commercial grid.

Installed on July 19, experts hope that the device will be able to produce up to 16 megawatts of energy for homes near Fujian Province.

If that weren’t impressive enough, each blade is 403ft (123m) long – which is rough twice the length of a standard American football pitch.

    I have real problems with autocratic countries like e.g. China - they are massively increasing the investments in Coal plants, massively increasing the import of Russian fossil fuels i.e. Gas and Oil, build none sustainable Nuclear Power Plants (a 1950' technology) and then they also build Wind- and Solar power...Climate love???

                Taiwan street could be problematic, that's where China is moving their stake claim closer towards Taiwan island, which they repeatedly threaten to concur with armed forces
