firewinders .. . wind energy

wonderful wind powered lights by Tom Lawton
* * * ". . . . Tom wondered if it was possible to transform the wind into light
- to create a beautiful spiral of light; giving hope to a world,
which sometimes appears to be doomed by its own environmental disregard.
Tom hopes to be able to inspire people to think about the invisible beauty,
awesome power and endless resource of the alternative energies which encircle us
