What the topical-environmental-issue-based episode is going on here?

Whether it’s Mad Cow Disease, solar power or vegetarianism, The Simpsons is never afraid to dig deep into the hottest environmental issues of the day, and this week’s episode is no different.

First there’s Homer, who hoping to cut down his electric bill purchases a wind turbine. Long story short, at first there isn’t enough wind to produce power, but after a storm hits Springfield the Simpson family has more electricity than they know what to do with.

Sadly, however, the storm wreaks havoc on the city and Lisa finds a beached whale on the shore. I regret to report the cartoon whale does not make it and Lisa is forced to accept the whale’s death.

So how did the episode go over? A reviewer on FireFox.org writes:

“This is the most uneven episode of The Simpsons this critic has ever seen, and she’s been watching the show since its first episode.It starts out solidly, with a funny trailer for “Tic Tac Toe – The Movie”; everything leading up to and including the energy fair works well.But the plot’s only a lead-in point for the whale story, which is far more somber.”
