In the same vein, this is Björk's wisdom about energy in Iceland in a recent interview <http://www.thestoolpigeon.co.uk/features/interview-bjork-biophilia.html
"Green solutions are easier — if you’re using tidal energy, it’s cheaper, and you’re going to be better off in the long run. What I want to do is not go, ‘Okay, let’s have it how it used to be — all nostalgic and nationalistic.’ I want to use this energy… I want to use it to go high-tech, and so do a lot of people, not just me. I don’t want to do what England or what Europe had to do — 200 years of building factories. We don’t have to do that. We can go straight into high-tech, solar power, wind farms… and then we can come into the 21st century."
