snipshot_cwithnus9.jpgFamous chef Jamie Oliver — also known as The Naked Chef — wants to make his new restaurant in Cornwall more friendly by installing wind turbines. From the article,

“He has applied to put two turbines on the roof of Fifteen in Watergate Bay, near Newquay, Cornwall. By harnessing the wind, Oliver hopes to halve the power consumption in his restaurant.

Each turbine measures 1.8m in diameter and would be painted the same colour as the roof, said restaurant director Will Ashworth. “The visual impact will be very low and the environmental impact very high. The only place you will be able to see them from is the beach.”

Oliver is also hard at work at getting the UK to increase production and sales of organic food. Sales recently went up 30% thanks in part to some high-profile television programmes from Oliver about school food, which revealed what went into some processed foods.
