Podcaster discovers wind turbines are not for cooling down the planet
Here at Ozzy Man Reviews, we’re all about education. Yeah, nah, we reckon it’s pretty bloody harsh to shame someone for not knowing something. After all, we’re all at different stages of learning about things, and some people know more than others…but, we reckon there’s a limit to that. Sometimes you’ve just gotta put your hand up and own the fact you’ve dropped a bloody clanger. This is one of those moments. Give it a squiz…
It all happened on the 90s Baby Network podcast. The show’s hosts Fred Santana and Temi Alchémy were discussing wind turbines and ethical power generation when Fred was exposed to some knowledge that turned his world upside down.
After learning how wind turbines work, Fred let the cat out of the bag. Turns out he thought wind turbines worked like fans and were designed to stop global warming. “I’m not talking about the ones to generate (electricity),” he says. “I’m talking about the wind turbines for global warming.”
Around him, there are confused looks. “What?” Someone asks, genuinely curious.
“I thought that’s what they were for, no? To cool down the earth?”
And then his mates lose it.
“You thought it was like a fan, basically?” His mates explain to him that turbines are for global warming because they don’t use greenhouse gases, and although he does the right thing and accepts the new knowledge like a learner, making himself smarter in the process, he still takes a bit of time to get there.
“It’s a fan, bruv! Stand in front of it. I bet you it’ll be cold!”
As you can imagine, it’s a golden moment, and it’s one that’s well worth a chuckle. Give it a squiz…
Final thought: Yeah, nah, as much as this is funny, we stand by the point that Fred doesn’t double down on this, saying the facts are wrong. He Googles it, he learns something new, and he moves on. It’s a top moment, and it’s one everyone can learn from.
