Pittsburgh, once a symbol of America’s industrial decline, will host the largest wind-power conference in history next week. About 4,500 people are expected to attend Windpower 2006, according to published estimates by the American Wind Energy Association.
Unfortunately, I won’t be there. Duty — both familial and professional — has me stuck in New York. That’s too bad. I really would like to attend the sessions on “Green Power as a Marketing Tool” (a subject that is near and dear to my heart) and “Buying Turbines” (I have a dream of someday buying a piece of land near my favorite town in rural Missouri and generating some power.) I would have also welcomed the chance to convince some of those 4,500 people to read this blog.
