Just a quick note…
A peer-reviewed report out of the UK demonstrates that wind can supply a major portion of their power supply, and all the negative concerns are, quite simply, not true. The report concluded:
“unequivocally that wind power can significantly reduce carbon emissions, is reliable, poses no threat to energy security and is technically capable of providing a significant proportion of the UK’s electricity with minimal impact on the existing operation of the grid”
“Claims to the contrary are not supported by the evidence”
In spite of this report, and many like it, I’m sure it will have no effect on the debate anywhere else. After all, the wind in the UK is made up of different molecules than it is here, right?
