Trump's Squandered Green Opportunity
By Paul Tomori

While in south Florida this Winter, I found myself driving just about daily past Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago mansion (now converted into a country club from what I am told). Out front, there is an absolutely massive American flag. Does Trump do anything in a small way? He likes to assert his love for his country and measures that expression by the size of the flag... it seems. To raise such a monstrosity in the posh Palm Beach right on Ocean Boulevard, Trump defied all city by-laws and challenged the town to force him to take down his testament to the glory of the country that made their local government a possibility. I hear he settled the dispute by agreeing to a slightly higher property tax. Money can buy one man's ability to have his principles supersede the principles of other men I guess!

After a few passes it occurred to me... With all that steady wind coming directly off the Atlantic and with Trump`s proximity... and with his no doubt incredible energy needs in such a massive mansion, would it not have made more sense for Mr. Trump to install a huge windmill? Let the city council of Palm Beach fight that one! They'd be up against the entire "green" environmentalist movement and he would have gotten tremendous moral support from many people. Heck, Rod Stewart and Conrad Black might then follow suit too (being his not too distant neighbours)! Wouldn't that have made headlines across America.

Hey Mr. Trump... it's not too late... Get a windmill, eh?
