  1. Liar! That is totally photoshopped. You have like three pictures of an aircraft carrier on top of each other with a few wind turbines and solar pannels.

  2. Not to mention the clouds to the right and the waves behind seen to the left are also photochopped into a triple view.

  3. wind turbines are absurd on a moving object. drag will be greater than energy produced… a monkey thought that up
