I intend my headline more in a philosophical sense than literal, since this isn't the first I've heard that there is a backlog in wind-turbine construction. This story from CNet News's excellent green tech blog says that GE calculates its backlog at $12 billion, up a billion just in the past quarter, and more than twice its size just a year ago.
Would you say this is more good news than bad? Good because it's certain proof that the market wants wind power, and bad because ... well, never mind. It's good news, period, even if the gratification isn't instant. Presumably, industry will see there is money to be made in building turbines, and it will make more of them.
