Mr. Kobayashi Reveals Plans For A Greener Home
“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist.”
So goes one of the greatest quotes from the movie The Usual Suspects. A film in which Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite played the role of Mr. Kobayashi; the unflinching lawyer to the devil, Kaiser Soze. In real life, Postlethwaite is becoming serious about the environment and taking steps to remodel his English home to reflect his green values. From the article,
“He has applied to South Shropshire District Council for permission to install a new wind turbine, which will generate electricity for his own use. And he also wants to install special eco-friendly insulation and photovoltaic tiles to his roof, so that he can convert sunlight into electricity.”
Postlethwaite said that the wind turbine he has in mind will generate about six kilowatts of energy and stand roughly 11 meters high. He’s taking care to consider zoning laws and other regulations so that the tower does not create issues with neighbors or wildlife.
See: the devil is in the details….
