Water Water everywhere-lets generate world wide

As storm force winds blow how can the wind turbine maintain generation and equilibrium? Does the geared end disengage and if not do we get the massive ‘electric fires’ seen in different parts of the world.

With water powered units we can for example use sea water to drive the turbine and then divert the sea water to a desalination plant that would make drought a thing of the past. We could irrigate areas previously thought to be too barren to grow crops, so a water powered unit has the extra benefit of water for crop growth.
