This high class housing complex is all the rage in Fengyuan (found by Sponge Bear).

Lotsa news this week....

JUST FOR KICKS: New species discovered all the time. And this photo heavy post at DKOS of strange earth phenomena.

That they may be true, but on the other hand, can't the same also be said of, say, both North and South Korea or Japan? All of those countries are also clearly different from their neighbors (including Taiwan). Is Jerome suffering a bit from cultural myopia?

The west coast of Taiwan has to be good for offshore windmills... it's shallow water but good wind. Big issue are the typhoons/hurricanes.

Hopefully there aren't issues with rare birds getting caught in them... I've read that bats actually have a much tougher time avoiding wind turbines. If that's the case, all the more attractive is offshore.

The only drawback I can see is Taiwan has no players in the wind power industry right now, though there are many component manufacturers that would benefit (transformers, battery systems).
