BEST DEFENSE AGAINST DRONES: GIANT WIND MILLS
The Prime Minister of Bogalia, a small Indonesian nation on the verge of total energy independence sees wind generators as its number one defense against drone attacks.
“We are a peaceful people. No suicide bombers here. We have a very small military, but nobody in Bogalia wants to be surgically struck by an aggressor nation’s drones. When we learned that the placement of wind generators near military installations in France, Great Britain and the U.S. was not allowed because of the threat of collisions, we had an idea. Like the blimps used by Great Britain over London during the Nazi air attacks, we would place thousands of churning wind mills throughout Bogalia. Unless the aggressor nation is willing to use clumsy conventional weaponry rather than its surgical drone strikes, we have the perfect defense. A maze of spinning windmill blades is next to impossible for a drone or its ordinance to maneuver around,” said Kahalli Li Lawundi.
Bogalia has reduced its oil dependency by 85% in recent years. With an economy based on small family farms which use electric tractors attached to overhead power lines, banana and coconut groves are also mechanized using the same power source. The fishing and leisure-time industry thrives in a carefree nudist culture where fish by-products and septic tank and waste recycling replaces petro-chemicals as the main source of nitrates and fertilizers in a semi-closed, environmentally friendly eco-system. “Bogalia uses Bolivian Lithium in its extensive warehousing of storage batteries, but given its mild climate and love of the night life, night-time electric usage is less than 10% of what it had been when Bogalia used petro-chemical power sources,” said Mr. Lawundi.
Lawundi believes that an effective strategy for promoting wind energy is for citizen groups in the industrialized nations, particularly the U.S., to propose the building of large wind farms adjacent to drone hangars and navy and air force training bases. “Of course they won’t let it happen, but routinely calling attention to a building proposal for new wind farms next to a military base every six to twelve months should help keep the issue on the front burner,” said Lawundi.
