The other day, I visited a local business, Jiminy Peak. This is an upscale ski resort run by an old family friend of my husband who began skiing there 45 years ago when it was very small. The owners of this resort are environmentalists who try to minimize their carbon foot print as well as design slopes and care for the water sources so that there is minimum impact on nature. They recently installed a wind mill on top of the mountain. It is very lovely, I think. But then, I am fond of such mega-structures like the Eiffel Tower, too. Also, a company proposes a new ocean wave energy system.
