Environmental : Earth Day

Can humanity, when having an impact on Nature, be more conscious about the consequences ?

I am all for renewable Energy, but what happens when technology advances way faster then predicted or funding gets cut ?
Working on a project in Hawaii a couple of years ago, I came across Kamaoa, the local abandoned wind farm and eye sore for many years. There was an eery energy about this place while shooting images of these disabled giants at night.

The removal cost is tremendous, but finally last year the last of the windmills were torn down and are being sold to China for scrap metal. Here is a video by the local news.
