NAWAZ Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif are fixated in the idea of ensuring an almost loadshedding-free Pakistan. Besides, they belong to a family which has been in business for quite some time. They know better than most what a ‘good deal’ is. Invest and harvest.

Besides the coal, why not also tap the wind that at least is free. Anyone who surfs the Internet has seen windmill power producing plants in the UK, the US and other Western countries.

We also have done something on it in Sindh and it appears to be working well. Why doen’t Nawaz Sharif ask for the financial figures versus the returns.

I say so because coal produces gases through which we lose points in one of the UN branches and wind being green (not even that). Let us try and harness it from Shandur top (where the game of kings is played) to the Sufaid Koh, besides the windy corridor of Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta and Sukkur, where, people have wind catchers on top of their houses to bring cool air in. Let us try this wind energy. I think that this can come in line if we have the will.

If Nawaz Sharif succeeds, he would become our saviour.

No haphazard approach will be successful. Pakistan has to have a coordinated plan to solve the energy crisis. The plans must be discussed in open forums, where the government planners and other specialists should participate. Do not let the government functionaries hide behind curtain.

All energy sources will have to be accounted for, including: wind, sun, hydro electric, gas, coal, nuclear power, etc. People must insist on bringing those plans out, and not let the government hide, and make vague statements. These problems have become too critical to leave up to the incapable and ignorant leaders. You are seeing the results of it.

Very good idea, I second it. But just a niggling after thoiught, what is the problem of oil from the middle east for USA and Europe? And why don't the highly technically developed nations do it completely, instead of just experimental showpiece. I bet you would harness more energy by tapping the wind coming from the behind of cattle.

@Ahmar Qureshi: Mr. Qureshi, I agree with you about wind, but this is not the only source to be exploited. We are not going to run out of wind and sun. But just these two sources are not enough. Nuclear power is an unlimited source, but needs a very heavy investment. If Pakistan can do this, it will be out of this crisis for ever.
