Base Jumping Off Wind Turbines Is Insane (Video)

XXXTREME ALTERNATIVE ENERGY!!!!11

Not exactly hard green news, but this video of mental patients adrenaline junkies base jumping off wind turbines is pretty cool. Most of them seem to be jumping off the back of the nacelle, but some are actually going all the way to the end of one of the blades (on a stopped turbine, thankfully). These guys are probably looking forward to the 688 feet tall 15 MW turbines that are coming in 2020 (if they live that long). Via Grist, The Atlantic.
