      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

There was an article in the PI this morning about this. I think at first glance it's a good idea, but then they mentioned how the largest units have a tip velocity of 40 knots. That would be enough to make mince meat of any fish that happens along.

I saw were they were testing the designs so this doesn't happen. If they can make them with out slicing everything up its a great idea. Otherwise the orcas are done.

Its hard not to be pissed about what is happening to America under this current administration at this time. And…..I do not live in a pissed off state. I was just asking a simple question. I have asked this too many conservatives/republicans and not one can answer it. Including you!

 

Name one good thing? Just one…..that is all I am asking?

 

I know you will come back with some witty (or poor attempt at being witty) response as to why I am a jerk for wanting to know. Try not to look at it as Dems….or Rep…..just me talking to you. Regular people. Has this president done anything good for this country? You voted for him….there has to be a reason for it?

I thought the book was fantastic. I thought Ron Howard did as good as job as anyone with a difficult book to make into a movie.

Any impact the turbines would have on fish populations is negligable compared to the overharvesting of fish for food. The clean energy is far more worth it. (I love fishies too, but reality beckons)

It does look like a cool device. Like anything I'm sure there are drawbacks, but maybe they're worth it.

I was thinking how much fun it would be to go through one of those while I'm Scuba Diving under the Deception Pass bridge. This is one of the proposed sites. Might get interesting. It would suck if it ruined that site for diving.

For those of you that IM me cause you were offended I called Hilliary a "B" Sorry.
I'm optimistic that a solution can be worked out that preserves fish and provides lots of clean power. Seems like quite a challenge to make a device that can withstand the horrendous corrosion potential of salt water, be serviceable and still economically feasible.
