Death By AGW..."Solutions"

If you embiggenify, you can see two men who were working on this 300 ft. carbon crucifix when it caught fire. No Peace Prize were indicted for their murder.

Did they survive?

From where I sit, it looks like the
only thing they can do is sit and
watch it burn itself out.

They certainly cannot enter the
nacelle and climb down the column!

This happened on 29 of October in the Netherlands (in Ooltgensplaat to be more precise).

A crew of four was conducting routine maintenance to the 67 meter high turbine. They were in a gondola next to the turbine when a fire broke out. The fire quickly engulfed the only escape route (the stairs in the shaft), trapping two of the maintenance crew on top of the turbine. One of them jumped down and was found in a field next to the turbine. The other victim was found by a special firefighter team that ascended the turbine when the fire died down a bit. The cause of the fire is unknown, but is believed to be a short circuit.

reserve chute or a really long rope and a rappelling harness. No way you'd ever get me up one of those things otherwise.

I guess Gaia needed a sacrifice.
