I have no way to measure this size of this wind turbine, but it and its many
sisters here are really, really big! It was in the middle ages that
people in these parts first used the wind to power mills that turned wheat
into flour. Until then only places near rivers could afford to produce
enough bread to feed a stable population. The windmill changed the face
of Europe. Many hope today that the energy from the wind may do the same
for the planet.
