Wind and solar energy are probably the two coolest "human tricks" that we've pulled in the past 100 years. We've all seen the commercials for wind energy that feature cars speeding through plains (or deserts), past rolling hills studded with beautiful white towers. Gorgeous! And solar energy? Those panels look like something straight out of X-Men. The problem is that they're never really seen around New York City. We're sure there's some high-rise popping up on the LES that features huge windmills on top that will piss everyone off, but until that comes, we may have to rely on Staten Island lawmakers. The New York Daily News reports that S.I. officials are planning to turn part of the Fresh Kills landfill into a space for the city to get some much needed renewable energy.
