Wind energy from middle of the ocean??

by Vinny

For years, tourists and those who live by oceans have complained about the turbines "spoiling the view". Well, no more, since a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created a way to put the turbines in the middle of the ocean. They will do this by putting cement blocks tied to the bottom of it, and a cable running so the turbine can still be above the water. The best part is, Hurricanes and strong winds can't take them down! For more information, go here.
