LESSONS OF CHERNOBYL

As a candidate for overseas aid tied to wind power, the former Soviet Union might well be a worthy recipient. It has a vast wind resource, a chronic power deficit and an able workforce in the dozens of military factories awaiting conversion. The barriers to wind development are mainly lack of money and lack of expertise, problems aid can fix. As Vladimir Khorevich (right) would be the first to point out, the lancing of a wind aid programme would be a fitting commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. He and his family are Chernobyl survivors.
