The future of wind turbines [VIDEO]

This is what should happen to all wind turbines.

Demolition of 200ft (61m) wind turbine tower at Klug Hill Farm in Torrington CT.

Optiwind was an energy startup developing a mid-sized wind turbine design. This tower is a prototype built in 2009. Financial difficulties forced Optiwind to close its doors in early 2013, leaving the tower behind. With no other suitable use for the tower, decision was made to bring it down. After removing all the support braces, the three main columns were cut with plasma torch (the last one from the passenger seat of an ATV) , and a gentle tug with a tractor did the rest. Aerial shots captured using DJI F550 hexacopter with Gimbal mounted GoPro Hero3.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
