Question by The Presidential Finger: How much land must the Federal Government take to put in place all the wind turbines we need?
We need a significant number of wind turbines to replace the oil and coal industries. These turbines need land. We can hardly take it from National Parks, so we need to take it from citizens. This is, of course, constitutional (see the Fifth Amendment). It is also constitutional to take land from one citizen, and give it to a private developer (see Kelo v. New London). This private developer could be a wind turbine company.
How much land must the Federal Government take to put in place all the wind turbines we need?
Answer by Andy It would need to cover the entire area of Nebraska with solar panels to make that work, so wind turbines would be much more.

Robert Llewellyn provides insight on renewable energy in Germany. LIKE Fully Charged on Facebook @ fb.me Fully Charged Podcast on iTunes @ bit.ly Robert first speaks with government official Dr. Silke Karcher, who heads the division ‘EU-Affairs and Bilateral Cooperation of Environment and Energy’. They discuss Germany’s future plans for energy, which involves the abandoning of nuclear energy and move towards wind, gas & solar. He then goes down to Leipzig to see a Juwi Energy Park, where a tour is given around a huge solar power plant by Sylvia Hamm. This produces a significant amount of energy for the German grid. Juwi Energy Park @ www.energiepark-brandis.de ABOUT FULLY CHARGED: Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. During this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change how we think about energy consumption now. He will be taking a look at the newest electric cars available on the market [Volvo, Ford, Peugeot, Renault & Nissan] and also different forms of renewable energy [Wind and Solar]. Video Rating: 4 / 5
