    The ONLY solution to save this planet is in a perilous situation for the next 3 or 4 4 years at the most. There is not a moment to easte. The stoppage of the oceanict conveyor belt spells disaster on the scale of nuclear anniliation or an empire size state building or smaller, hitting the earth. Wind is currenrt immidiate solution on a buildup inlike any other engineering project every undertaken by humans, By rthe way, wind turbines are a subset of solar energy. I Hope the economical upheavil will,l beg, not stop this life and earth safing necessity. Randall H. Luck Cornell University/ N. Y. and the Eisebnberg School of Management./Amherst, Mass.
