Your Philosopher Kings in action, Act the Second

Brock posts about the 14,000 abandoned windmills in the US:
The US experience with wind farms has left over 14,000 wind turbines abandoned and slowly decaying, in most instances the turbines are just left as symbols of a dying Climate Religion, nowhere have the Green Environmentalists appeared to clear up their mess or even complain about the abandoned wind farms.
Jobs "created or saved", right there.

IN Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desart knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand."— The City's gone,—
Naught but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

- Horace Smith

They will let them decay until someone is killed, THEN they will scramble to find someone else to blame for it...

Today's follies are tomorrow's archeological treasures...

Blighted ruins in the dusty fields of yet another failed civilization
